Aquarium Volunteer and Job Opportunities

Aquarium Volunteer and Job Opportunities

The North Carolina Aquariums offer more than just a few hours of gazing at incredible fish and other animals. If you live close enough to one of these three locations and have at least four hours a week of time to give, you could become a volunteer. As a year round volunteer, you could assist the staff in many different operations of the aquarium. Volunteer jobs are available in all areas so there is one just for you. If you enjoy talking to the public, you could be an education volunteer. They assist the staff with everything from the touch tanks to making small presentations. The aquarium provides all the training needed. If you are more interested in plants, the aquarium is always looking for volunteers in the horticultural department. You must be willing to get wet and/or dirty though, and a basic knowledge of plants and a willingness to learn is required. Perhaps you are a certified diver and just want to get in the water more. All three locations can use you to help with everything from cleaning the tanks from the inside, to assisting the main diver during their dive talks in main tanks. If you just have a general love for the animals but don't want to talk to the public, the aquarists can use you to help them with general maintenance of the filter systems or prepare food for the exhibits. Volunteers should be 18 years of age or older, but there are also positions for junior volunteers. Volunteers get a free shirt, free admission to the aquarium, a pin and a discount at the gift shop. If you are interested, you can go to the North Carolina Aquariums Website and download an application.

The aquariums also offer a summer internship program through the state. This position pays an hourly wage for working 40 hours a week for 12 to 14 weeks. Applications for this are taken through the state. Internists will perform a wide range of activities from taking care of the animals to working at summer camps.
