Every year, literally hundreds of dedicated, passionate people give their time to the Seattle Aquarium—prepping food for our animals, answering questions from our many visitors, and furthering our mission of Inspiring Conservation of Our Marine Environment. In 2013 alone, 1,380 volunteers donated 96,800 hours to our institution!
We couldn’t appreciate our volunteers more, and now is the perfect time to show it. April 6–12 is National Volunteer Appreciation Week, and we want to take this opportunity to say a huge and heartfelt thanks to the many people who share their time and energy with the Seattle Aquarium.
This week, we’ll be sharing thoughts from a few of our volunteers about why they choose to volunteer with us, what they love about volunteering at the Aquarium, and what impacts their volunteer experiences have had on their lives. Check back soon to see what our amazing volunteers have to say!
