Want to be an animal trainer when you grow up?

Do you need to learn about a career for a school assignment, or are you interested in a job in the animal care field? The Job Shadow series of classes at the Aquarium is perfect for either. We have four unique 3-hour classes that are sure to give you the inside scoop on a career in marine biology. Take the entire series, or just pick one.

Job shadow Classes are led by Aquarium Educators and include opportunities to interact with animal care staff.

Mammalogist:

This Job Shadow Class takes a closer look at the fascinating and competitive field of marine mammal training. During this 3-hour class participants will:

Hear from our marine mammal staff what it takes to do their jobs
Learn some of the common hand signals our trainers use while training our mammals
Visit various behind-the-scenes locations
Feed the sea otters behind-the-scenes*
Other activities may include:

Observe sea otters on exhibit while looking for discrete otter behaviors
Observe a seal and sea lion feed
Prepare food for the seals and sea lions
Meet some of the program animals our mammalogists also train
Practice training using positive reinforcement techniques on a classmate
*The Aquarium reserves the right to change the animal interactions without notice due to animal safety, exhibit maintenance, or animal health reasons.

Participants must wear closed-toe shoes for behind the scenes access!
