Become an Education Volunteer at The Marine Mammal Center!

My interest in marine mammals began with seeing them so often while sailboat racing.  We debated "seal or sea lion" with highly questionable doubt.

Become an education volunteer at the Marine Mammal Center and learn about them, and start spreading your passion and knowledge of The Marine Mammal Center and its work to others.


In addition to volunteering at the Center, this opens up other opportunities like Pier 39 Docenting, and other outreach and special events.


The Marine Mammal Center Education Department is holding a two-day training for all those who want to help docent at the Information Desk, engage visitors at the 2nd level overlook where the animals are, and begin the process of becoming a tour guide.

 

The trainings will be held on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2 at the Center in Sausalito from 10-4.  Attendance is required for both days. Detailed info is here:

Volunteers are required to commit 16 hours a week (1 4-hr shift a week) for a minimum of 6 months.

There is a small class fee, but if that is a problem discuss let staff know.

For more information or to register for the training, please email [masked] or call [masked].

    By far one of the best experiences I've had. Dedicated people who are living the mission to provide rescue, rehabilitation and release of marine mammals back to their habitat. Their research hospital is the largest in the world and is the gold standard of all marine conservation! I am honored to be apart of their team!
    Thank you Dave for sharing this gem!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
