Volunteering & Internships

The New York Aquarium offers five volunteer programs. Our docent program is designed for those interested in volunteering with our Education Department. Volunteers with our Animal Department help behind-the-scenes with animal care and those in the Animal Health Center gain an introduction to the laboratory and veterinary fields. Our Volunteer Dive program is for certified SCUBA divers. Participants help maintain our tanks—and don't mind getting wet!
