Animal care volunteering is a unique opportunity to work with marine mammals. As a volunteer, you will assist in the treatment and care of seals, sea lions and cetaceans

As a PMMC Docent, you will be joining a team of dynamic individuals who are passionate about sharing our mission and knowledge about marine mammals and conservation.


Gift Shop volunteers greet and assist our visitors with their Gift Shop purchases and payment transactions. Volunteers help stock the gift store shelves, take simple inventory as requested, and help keep the Gift Shop tidy.
