ASSIST THE FISH! WAIKIKI AQUARIUM VOLUNTEER TRAINING BEGINS MAY 5, 2012
HONOLULU (DRAFT) – The Waikiki Aquarium offers a sea of volunteer opportunities that provide the chance to teach residents and visitors about Hawai‘i sea life and conservation. The Aquarium will hold free Aquarium volunteer Interpreter training sessions beginning May 5 through June 2, 2012.
Interpreters share natural history information on the Waikiki Aquarium’s outdoor reef exhibit, guide visitor observations and answer questions about Hawai‘i’s marine environment. The training course covers interpretation and hospitality skills, information on exhibit operations, and various marine sciences. Interpreters work one two-hour shift per week for a minimum period of six months.
Eight training sessions will be held every Saturday morning from 9:00 a.m. to noon, and every Thursday evening from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Please note, there will be no class on Saturday, May 12, 2012. One-on-one sessions will then be scheduled for on-the-job training.
