In August 2017 we will be opening a new exhibit Narwhal: Revealing an Arctic legend and are currently in the process of recruiting volunteers to interact with visitors in this exhibit and the Sant ocean hall. We will provide all the training necessary to prepare volunteers in September and they will start once they have completed the training. Volunteers would commit to coming into the museum eight hours a month for one year and must be 18 or older.
Volunteers will answer questions, spark conversations and engage visitors with cultural objects and marine specimens in the Narwhal exhibit and Sant Ocean Hall. The exhibits cover topics such as narwhal biology, Inuit culture, the effects of climate change in the Arctic, biodiversity in the ocean, fossil records of marine life, and human’s impact on the ocean and contain over 674 marine specimen. Volunteers will get the opportunity to learn directly from world renowned scientists, gain experience communicating the importance of our natural world to visitors, and much more.
