The Irukandji Shark & Ray Encounters Program is a great way to gain experience and further knowledge within the aquarium industry. Many University or TAFE courses make it a requirement to gain practical experience in the field. This is where Irukandji can show you what it is like to be an Aquarist in an interactive aquarium.
Each volunteer applicant must be able to commit to one day a week, the same day each week, from 9am – 5pm. Applicants must be 16 years of age
Participating in the Volunteer Program does not guarantee employment at Irakundji Shark & Ray Encounters or within the Aquarium industry, but it certainly opens the door to learning and increases your chances of employment within this tough industry and our centre.
Once accepted into the program, all volunteers must undergo a 4 week trial period during which completion of the Occupational, Health and Safety Manual is mandatory.
