The North Carolina Aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores is seeking volunteers. This Saturday, February 2nd, the aquarium will be hosting an open house for anyone interested in donating their time to the aquarium. If you live close by and this is something that interests you, make sure to stop by between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Aquarium staff and veteran volunteers will be there to discuss opportunities and benefits. No experience necessary. According to the North Carolina Aquarium website;

“The Aquarium is recruiting interpreters for a new volunteer post to help visitors get a bird’s-eye view of the salt marsh….Interpreters also are needed at the two popular touch pools. At the Tidal Touch Pool, interpreters offer insight into the life cycles of horseshoe crabs, spider and hermit crabs, ocean snails and other invertebrates. Skate and Ray Encounters interpreters share the joy of touching these gentle creatures. Volunteers also assist in visitor education, exhibit interpretation, helping with special events throughout the year and in a variety of other ways.”

Although it does not appear this aquarium has much in the way of cichlids, it is still a great opportunity to learn and help out. Volunteers also receive the added benefits of free admission and discounts at the Aquarium Gift Shop and on special activities. If this is something you would be interested in doing, visit the North Carolina Aquarium Pine Knoll Shores website for more information and directions.
