Volunteer For the Ocean

Shark Stewards is a kelp roots organization relying on volunteer energy to save sharks and protect ocean habitat. We always have hands on need during our community advocacy, education and outreach celebrations, but we rely on volunteers for the real work saving sharks internationally, wherever you are. During COVID we have continued our education program, writing and outreach efforts online. With petitions, social media and web outreach, whatever your age or talents, you can help us from anywhere in the world by sharing our work through social media and contributing your passion.

Event Coordinator

Shark Stewards is seeking an organized, committed individual to communicate and organize our shark team at events. We fight for sharks but we have fun doing it- and occasionally we even dive with them!

We are seeking a person or persons for 2023 events who can spend 4 hours/week working with our director and volunteer coordinator to:

  • develop and create new ideas to reach people online during COVID
  • coordinate our volunteers at online and eventually again real events;
  • develop new outreach materials and activities;
  • help coordinate activities and manage activities;
  • be creative and have fun communicating shark and marine protection;
  • develop opportunities for groups to hold their own events and raise money such as movie night, bake sale.
  • build our network to advance the shark stewards mission saving sharks from the shark fin trade and overfishing, and establish marine protected areas.


Development Coordinator
