Join the Boats Coordinator on data collection for blue whales, fin whales, and humpback whales during our daily whale watching cruises, as well as interpreting data to guests at the Aquarium. This is a great opportunity for college students and recent graduates to gain valuable experience.

Commitment: 15-20 hours/week for 15 weeks starting beginning on September

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to

 *   Taking dorsal fin photos of animals encountered during daily whale watching cruises (these are opportunistic sightings as we are a public whale watching boat)
 *   Maintain detailed data logs of sightings and enter them into ACCESS databases
 *   Answer questions and interpreting for guests on board.
 *   Photo processing and IDing individual whales seen during daily trips
 *   Create a project to display to Aquarium guests using whale data
 *   Maintain Whale App database
