Chelsea holding a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach during her first week at Pacific Science Center. One of her favorite Science Center memories!
In my position, I also have the opportunity to work with staff on creating new volunteer opportunities and recruiting volunteers. I am very excited to share with you details on our new Animal Care volunteer position. Although we currently have a small cadre of Animal Care volunteers, this is the first time that we have created a formal position description. We are also expanding our volunteer roster and are eager to work with volunteers that are passionate about animals and sharing that passion with our guests.
The Animal Care volunteers have an amazing opportunity to get up close and personal with our many creatures and critters. They will assist with daily tasks to care for our animals, such as preparing food, cleaning and maintaining healthy habitats, and even pinning pupae. In addition, they will help us learn about the animals and share that knowledge with our many guests. If you love naked mole rats, tropical butterflies, spiders, Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches, snakes, leopard geckos and talking to people -- then this could be an excellent opportunity for you! Volunteers will receive ample training.
I encourage you to consider joining the Animal Care volunteer team by applying today! The online application is very easy to complete and can be found here: http://www.pacificsciencecenter.org/Get-Involved/volunteer. In addition, Pacific Science Center volunteers receive many great perks.
If you have any questions about volunteering, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-443-2868. I hope you apply!
