Realize the good you can do by simply giving your time. You can be part of something meaningful and help support one of the world's foremost marine research organizations by becoming a volunteer at Mote Marine Laboratory's facility on Summerland Key, Florida.

All prospective volunteers must attend a volunteer orientation and additional training sessions. The next volunteer orientation is 6:30 p.m. Dec. 5, 2019.

Each public tour is limited to 12 participants, so please RSVP to ensure your spot. Public tours are free but donations are encouraged, as Mote is a nonprofit dedicated to the ocean's future.
