Dear Kelli:

I can recommend two sources for finding volunteer positions.  WhaleNet has
a link for careers and educational resources at

I also find the MARMAM server to be helpful.  You'll get a few E-mail
messages a day, with news on marine mammals and available positions, both
paid and unpaid.

-To subscribe to MARMAM, send a message to:
saying: subscribe marmam Yourfirstname Yourlastname

Best of luck finding a position!
