The Langley Whale Center is looking for new volunteers.

The organization recently announced it’s accepting applications for those interested in being a volunteer docent. The position is responsible for greeting and counting visitors, explaining education displays and assist with gift shop sales.

The job is not age restrictive and all training is provided. Volunteers will learn about orcas, gray and humpback whale populations, and other marine mammals.

“You can make a huge impact by raising awareness about the whales and the importance of providing them healthy and safe habitats,” the news release said.

Contact Whale Center Manager Wendy Sines at wendylsines@gmail.com, or stop by the center and pick up a application.

The Langley Whale Center is a project of Orca Network, a non-profit organization that has been on Whidbey for 15 years. The center received over 20,000 visitors in 2016.
