One of the props that I use while I’m volunteering in the Shark and Ray Encounter exhibit is a real shark fin that had been confiscated from poachers.
I took the next step last Saturday in becoming a volunteer at the Albuquerque Aquarium by working the Shark and Ray Encounter for my first training shift.
What does it take for a public aquarium to run? I started looking through the job listing for my local aquarium and that’s where I stumbled across their volunteer program. What better way to learn more about how aquariums work than to become a volunteer?
