Established in 1979 as the first U.S. museum dedicated to whales living in
the wild, The Whale Museum promotes stewardship of whales and the Salish Sea
ecosystem through education and research. The Soundwatch Boater Education
Program was initiated in 1993 by The Whale Museum to reduce disturbances to
marine wildlife caused by irresponsible boater behaviors. This innovative
program educates boaters on guidelines and regulations for marine wildlife
through shore-based education, reinforces the learning experience through
on-the-water educational patrols, monitors vessel activities to characterize
vessel trends, and evaluate existing guidelines and laws. The main focus of
our work is the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales (SRKWs) but there
are other marine mammal species of importance in our region, including
Transient killer whales, Minke whales, Humpback whales, Fin whales, Harbor
porpoise, Dall's porpoise, Harbor seals, Steller sea lions, and many other
cetacean and pinniped species.  Please visit The Whale Museum's Web site for
more information on Soundwatch:



Application package should include: a cover letter, resume and up to five
references (reference letter or contact information for each reference).
Electronic submissions are encouraged in the form of a PDF compiled with the
requested information.  Please indicate which position you are applying for.

Active review of submitted applications will begin immediately and continue
