Exhibit Interpreters

Exhibit Interpreters engage guests with educational information and experiences that go beyond the aquarium glass. Exhibit Interpretation volunteers must be 18 years or older and willing to commit to 8 hours monthly (2 volunteer shifts). Exhibit Interpreters will also make use of WAVE Discovery Stations which aid in the delivery of educational and conservation material with artifacts. Periodically, Exhibit Interpreters will act as mentors to high school aged students that are interested in aquatic life and conservation. This is ideal for individuals with strong communication skills, who love to learn and want to interact with a diverse group of people.

Exhibit interpreters receive training to engage our guests and answer questions about everything within the aquarium, interpret exhibits, and discovery stations.
