Receive training in Hawaiian reef fishes and share that knowledge with aquarium visitors. Job Description After a week-long training session, your main duties will be educating the visitors to the aquarium on the different marine life. Specifically you will share what you have learned in training about the coral reef fish exhibits, seal exhibits, jellyfish, and others. In short you will have a high responsibility job that is the face of the aquarium. One of the more popular topics for visitors is the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle. You will have a chance to discuss the behavioral patterns of these gentle creatures as well as their nesting habits in the area. You will help visitors see beyond the surface to fully appreciate these magnificent wayfarers in their true splendor. Reef Fish Identification: Hawaii's reef fishes are celebrated worldwide for their high degree of endemism. With several species unique wholly to Hawaiian waters, this is your chance to share with visitors some of the evolutionary principles that make these Pacific waters truly Hawaiian. In addition, you will be able to share some of the mutually beneficial relationships enjoyed by cleaner wrasses and the several species of hosts they glean. Threats to the marine ecosystem: Coral bleaching is as much a problem in Hawaii as in other Pacific ecosystems. The death and destruction of these fragile environments come from many sources. Agricultural runoff, water temperature changes, boat anchors, and human footsteps are but a few of the dangers that a modern reef faces. Educate visitors on what they can do on both a large and small scale to help these magnificent systems endure for themselves and for future generations.
