It turns out that I didn’t get a chance to volunteer on two Saturday’s in a row due to the flu. However, I did get a chance to make it to an awesome event that was especially for teachers.

No matter how hectic a day can get, I find I still have a great time while volunteering at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Senior day and the shift that followed-filled with scheduling snafus-were no exception!

This was quite an eventful week for me at the Aquarium! I had a barbecue to go to, my regular Saturday volunteering, and another event for members! See what was unique and fun about each one.

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.

What was it like for me to volunteer two days in a row? Why was Young Professionals Night such a blast to participate in? Also, find out about the new creature lurking in our Shark Lagoon and read about my one of many “happy spurts”!

Summer always is a fun time for many, starting with children who attend various day camp programs offered by the Aquarium of the Pacific. But just because summer is ending doesn’t mean that the fun is over too. The educational, fun opportunities for youngsters abound, even during the school year, starting with children still in strollers to those ages 12 and older.

Or Why a Teen Would Enjoy Volunteering at an Aquarium
Waking up early on a Saturday morning is a hard thing to do, that is, unless you are getting up early to volunteer!

Being a volunteer at the Aquarium of the Pacific is like owning about 12,500 of some of the world’s most glorious and exotic pets!
Even though working as an Exhibit Interpreter and Day Captain for the Education Department can be exhausting, it is a most enjoyable way to tire out; the hours fly by because the pace often is quite hectic.
