Volunteer Position Descriptions
Our Resident Advocates have the very important job of monitoring our one-flippered sea turtle, Allison while she is wearing her prosthesis as well as educating the public about our current resident sea turtles. The position is mostly education-based and volunteers are expected to answer questions about our residents and general questions about the facility.
The Information Specialist plays a crucial role in educating the public about rehabilitation efforts at our facility, the threats sea turtles face, and how the public can help with the conservation of these species. This is an interactive role that will allow our volunteers to engage our guests about sea turtle conservation.
