There’s More Than You Think

Volunteers are involved in other things other than regular volunteering with shifts and events. They get a chance to go places and do things that they don’t get a chance to do while actually being at the Aquarium. Read about some of my experience and a hopeful soon-to-be one.

No Two Days Are Ever the Same! | Staci  buttonLink

No Two Days Are Ever the Same!

One of my favorite things about being a mammalogy volunteer is that when you walk through the doors early in the morning, you never know exactly what kind of different, exciting activities the day will bring!

Andrew, an Aquarium graphic designer and our webmaster, to the rescue!

You may think that the bird population around the Aquarium consists of sparrows, gulls, and rock pigeons. I have a story to tell about the rescue of an egret by a member of the Aquarium’s ‘dry side’ staff.

Stand-Out Moments Make Job Fun and Helping Children Is Rewarding | Josie  buttonLink

Stand-Out Moments Make Job Fun and Helping Children Is Rewarding

Helping children find the groups from which they have separated, answering questions, and seeing people enjoy new experiences are things that happen often at the Aquarium of the Pacific! Seeing those children reunited with the adults with whom they came is rewarding, answering those questions—sometimes the answers resolve bets—is rewarding, and seeing people experience new things make my job at the Aquarium worthwhile and loads of fun.

Hugh’s View of the Aquarium of the Pacific | Hugh  buttonLink

Hugh’s View of the Aquarium of the Pacific

Imagine swimming with a sea lion whose eyes gaze upon you with a sense of fond familiarity, being hip deep in the water holding a cranky old sea turtle, sitting with a small kangaroo-like critter on your lap in the fresh night air, cradling a delicate shorebird in your hands, having a half-dozen colorful parrot-like birds land on you just because they like your company, being the chauffeur for an animal that looks like a cross between a bear and a cat as he’s towed through the aquarium on a kiddie wagon, having some super fast squirrels climb all over you as you try to feed them, and the joy of enriching the life of an elderly, blind seal by teaching her how to find and retrieve an object tossed into the water—bringing play back into her day.

These are just a few of the wonderful experiences I’ve been fortunate to have as a husbandry volunteer with the Aquarium of the Pacific.
