Volunteer Kudos

The Volunteer Program department would like to extend our immense appreciation to all the dedicated volunteers that have been serving the Aquarium since our opening in November 2005. We are incredibly lucky to have such wonderful volunteers that contribute to every department here at the Aquarium, and volunteers work side by side with staff everyday to keep our Aquarium beautiful and our animals and guests happy. Thank you volunteers! You truly make a difference. Scroll down to see our Volunteer Kudos.
