Ocean Career Series

Ocean Career Series

Where Virtual

When January 25 and May 3 at 5:30pm Pacific

Do you love the ocean and the amazing animals that call it home? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to turn that passion into a job or career? Join us for this free virtual series to learn about different careers and career paths in marine and ocean sciences!

  • January 25 we will be highlighting the work and workspace of two of the Aquarium staff. Learn about what it takes to care for the animals who call the Aquarium home, as well as how we connect to animals in the wild with our research projects.
  • May 3 we will meet the Seattle Aquarium’s veterinarian and learn more about what’s involved in caring for the diverse population of animals at the Aquarium.

Register now to receive a link for these webinars. Must be registered by January 24 to receive the link for our first webinar on January 25. Registration for the May 3 webinar closes on May 2. You will receive a link to both webinars when registered (if registering by January 24), and there is no need to register twice.
