Fish can get sick too!

Do you need to learn about a career for a school assignment, or are you interested in a job in the animal care field? The Job Shadow series of classes at the Aquarium is perfect for either. We have four unique 3-hour classes that are sure to give you the inside scoop on a career in marine biology. Take the entire series, or just pick one.

Job shadow Classes are led by Aquarium Educators and include opportunities to interact with animal care staff.

Veterinarian:

This Job Shadow class takes a closer look at the unique and challenging field of marine animal veterinary science. During this 3-hour class participants will:

  • Hear from our veterinary staff about what it takes to do their job
  • Visit various behind-the-scenes locations
  • Diagnose and treat a “sick” stuffed animal much like our veterinarian would
  • Go on morning rounds to check on a range of animals currently under the veterinarian’s care

Other activities may include:

  • Tour our veterinarian facility
  • Observe our veterinary staff perform a procedure on an animal
  • Discover the tricks we employ to give our finicky ocean friends their medicine

*The Aquarium reserves the right to change the animal interactions without notice due to animal safety, exhibit maintenance, or animal health reasons.

Participants must wear closed-toe shoes for behind the scenes access!
