Are you passionate about learning more about the marine environment? Do you want to learn more and share that knowledge with those around you? Join the Seattle Aquarium's Habitat Interpretation Volunteer team and expand your expertise about what is living in the ocean and how you can work to conserve our one world ocean!

Habitat interpretation is a task shared by all volunteers and staff at the Aquarium. As an Interpreter you share your enthusiasm and the stories of our animals with Aquarium visitors.

Aquarium volunteers receive extensive training about our marine animals and interpretive communication techniques. The minimum time requirement for Aquarium interpreters is four hours every week for six months; shifts begin at 9am, 11am and 2pm seven days per week.
