Volunteer Opportunities

Interested in getting out and becoming actively involved with Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary? Check out the sanctuary’s volunteer programs.

Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary volunteer programs are designed to help sanctuary staff accomplish management objectives and to build a stewardship ethic in the community. By becoming a volunteer, you will not only be learning about the sanctuary but also helping others learn. In this way, you are helping to build awareness and enhance stewardship of sanctuary resources.

For information about current Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary volunteer opportunities, to inquire about which programs are most in need of volunteer assistance, or to request an application, contact sanctuary volunteer coordinator Hannah Weddington.
