Shadow our talented aviculture staff and see what it takes to run our successful bird exhibits here at the Aquarium.
Do you need to shadow a marine biologist for a school assignment or are you just interested in what a job in the field of animal care is like?
The Job Shadow series of programs at the Aquarium is perfect for either. We have four unique 3-hour programs that are sure to give you the inside scoop on a career in marine biology. Take the entire series, one is typically offered the first Wednesday and Saturday of every month.

- Prepare food for our diving birds (i.e. Puffins, Auklets, and Guillemots)
- Create enrichment toys for our Lorikeets
- Learn more about common local shore birds
