Volunteer Position: Seaquaria Guardian
Organization: World Fisheries Trust
Location: Victoria, BC

Casual/ Flexible hours (4-8 hours per month) for a minimum of 4 months

Start date: Flexible


About Us:

World Fisheries Trust is a Canadian, non-profit organization dedicated to the equitable and sustainable use and conservation of aquatic biodiversity. We act internationally with small-scale fisheries in Latin America and locally with environmental education including: the Seaquaria in Schools program, Gorge Waterway Nature House, Eco Learning Hive, and community-based environmental monitoring.

We are searching for outgoing and knowledgeable volunteer educators to assist with the delivery of school programs and/or tank monitoring. Volunteers will gain valuable experience and workplace skills in childhood education, environmental not for profits, and marine biology. There is a potential to grow within the organization, and we always strive to connect volunteers with interesting opportunities and various community initiatives. This is a group of people you want to get involved with!

The Seaquaria Guardian will:

  • Visit 1-3 Seaquaria schools once every week or every 2 weeks to monitor the health of the tank(s)
  • Collaborate with the contact teacher and other faculty on ways to provide hands-on and inquiry based learning for students of all ages
  • Aid in developing educational resources specific to the tank(s) which can be shared among the teaching community
  • Educate youth on the vast biodiversity along our coast and the role these animals (and the students themselves!) have in ocean ecosystems
  • May be called upon to assist with in-class educational programs at their guardian schools

While no experience is necessary, prior knowledge of marine organism diversity, ecosystem functions, and experience with children are an asset!
