The National Marine Life Center functions with a great deal of support from our amazing volunteers. Whether it is helping to file paperwork in the office, answering phones when they ring, educating the public about marine animals and rehabilitation, or working with the rehabilitation patients themselves, our volunteers are there! We could not function as well as we do here at NMLC without our amazing crew of hardworking and dedicated volunteers and interns! If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with the National Marine Life Center, please come to a volunteer orientation. Our next volunteer orientation will be held on December 1st, 2018 from 2-4 PM at the National Marine Life Center. Orientations are a great time to meet the staff, seasoned volunteers and potential new volunteers.
Volunteer Requirements: Volunteers must be 14 years old to work in Administration, Education and with the Headstart animals. Volunteers must be 18 years old to work with the rehabilitation animals. Volunteers maybe 12 years old if they are accompanied by a parent; there will be no direct contact with animals for anyone under 14 years old.
Without our volunteers we would never be able to educate the public, give amazing care to our rehabilitation animals, or be part of the community! Thank you to our current volunteers and we look forward to working with you!
