Volunteers

SeaScapes will be looking for hardworking, dedicated volunteers in the Summer of 2021.

If you are passionate about the ocean and its animals and are interested in learning more about this field,
please contact us at info@seascapesmarinecenter.com about volunteering!

 

Volunteers must be 18 years or older, have their own transportation, be able to lift 50+ pounds, be willing and able to handle ocean animals and their food, and be willing to collect animals when needed.

We have a lot of people who are interested in volunteering with SeaScapes. Although we would like to be able to welcome everyone onto our team, we currently have limited positions available and therefore not every person who applies to volunteer will be chosen. We will conduct interviews and choose based on interest and excitement in this field, proven dedication, experience and capability.

Thank you in advance for your interest in working with SeaScapes!!!
