Make a difference. Teach and inspire. Do more. These are only a few of the reasons people volunteer at the Aquarium. Sharing your time and enthusiasm for marine life can impact someone's day and benefit all our tomorrows.
Volunteers must be 18 years old and commit to a minimum of eight hours per month. After submitting a Volunteer Application Form, accepted volunteers will attend orientation, understand our mission and message, meet staff and learn more about volunteer opportunities. A required $25 fee, which covers uniforms and training, is due during volunteer orientation.
We are not currently accepting new volunteer or internship applications. We look forward to offering these opportunities again in the future.
