Volunteer Position Descriptions
Allison Lifeguards have the important job of monitoring our one-flippered sea turtle while she is wearing her prosthesis. The position is mostly education based and volunteers are expected to answer questions about Allison and general questions about the facility.
The information specialist will walk between the new education facility and the hospital to answer any questions that the public may have. The key word for this position is “engagement”. The information specialist will play a key role in ensuring that the visitors are having a positive experience at Sea Turtle, Inc.
Patient Advocacy Team
Patient Advocates have the important duty of educating the public about the patients that reside in our outdoor rehabilitation tanks. Monitors serve three hour shifts and typically are assigned to 2-3 tanks per shift.
The turtles at Sea Turtle, Inc. are fed a mixture of seafood daily. However, the way that our seafood comes in, is not the way that we can feed it to the turtles. Our volunteer team is in charge of prepping squid so that it is ready for the following day.
There are two greeter positions: one at our education center and one at our rehabilitation center. The greeter will explain the layout and flow of our facility to visitors.
Maintenance Assistants help with special projects in the facility including building, plumbing, painting and electric work. This is an “as needed” position.
