Dream of working with The Whale Museum? Here are some opportunities:
None at this time.
The Whale Museum is seeking a long-term Collections Volunteer. The volunteer would be involved in two projects. The first is updating the Sightings database, which involves transferring data from printed hard copies to a computer database. The second is tagging historical images. The museum recently digitized images from the early orca surveys. The volunteer will tag the images with keywords that will enable the images to be queried and used in orca identification. We are looking for someone who will become an expert in the tags and really make the project their own.
The volunteer should be comfortable with computers and databases. They should be able to perform repetitive tasks for long periods. Accuracy and attention to detail are essential. The volunteer is needed for at least two weekdays a week; if you want to volunteer more we welcome it. Ideally the volunteer would be able to volunteer 10 am – 4 pm both of their days. We are flexible on both the specific weekdays and time of volunteering; we can work with you to match your schedule. We are looking for someone to start immediately and volunteer through March 2019, or until the projects are concluded.
Please email Rebekah or call 360-378-4710 ext. 31, if you interested in this position.
