|The cake from DRC's Volunteer Recognition Day 2013.|
Have you ever thought about volunteering at Dolphin Research Center? In 2012, we had 107 volunteers. Currently, there are five volunteers with more than 2,000 hours, and one with over 25,000 hours! This does not include school groups that visit to volunteer their time at DRC.
In honor of Volunteer Recognition Day this post goes out to all of our fabulous volunteers from the past, present, and future. The responsibilities handled by our volunteers represent vital aspects of our operations. Volunteers work in our fish house where our dolphins' meals are prepared, care for our family of exotic birds, assist visitors by answering questions and monitoring interactive programs and tours, and are involved with facility maintenance such as trash collection, recycling, seaweed removal and fence cleaning, painting and landscaping. They also help with administrative projects such as computer data entry and preparation of bulk mailings.
Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers. We couldn’t be DRC without your amazing hard work and dedication.
