Animals living in the New England Aquarium rely on water to keep them healthy. Our Water Quality Lab staff analyzes environmental elements for all Aquarium exhibits to ensure the appropriate parameters are met to keep exhibits thriving.
Responsibilities: Collect water samples from various marine mammal, penguin and fish exhibits. Assist with the chemical and microbiological analysis of those and other water samples under the supervision of Water Quality Technical staff. Volunteers will be utilizing several techniques to analyze salt and fresh water, including pH meters, spectrophotometers, and titrations.
