Volunteers needed at the Waikiki Aquarium Volunteers needed at the Waikiki Aquarium

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Waikiki Aquarium is offering volunteer opportunities that provide the chance to teach residents and visitors about Hawaii sea life and conservation. The Aquarium will hold free volunteer training beginning Saturday, January 22, 2011.

Aquarium 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.

Eight training sessions will be held January 22 to February 15, 2011, every Tuesday from 6:30 - 9:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to noon in the Waikiki Aquarium classroom. One-on-one sessions will then be scheduled for on-the-job training. Interpreters work one two-hour shift per week for a minimum period of six months.

Interested parties can call 440-9020 or e-mail volunteer@waquarium.org for more information or to schedule a meeting and reserve space in the class.
