Volunteers that achieve 250 hours of service in their lifetime receive a pin at Voluntern in October in recognition for their dedication. At 500 hours, volunteers receive a new pin with a blue gem embedded to represent their new milestone. A white gem is added to represent 1000 hours, and additional blue and white pins are added for every 500 hours from there on out.

Look for these volunteers wearing their pins as you visit the Aquarium or meet fellow volunteers!


These are the pin recipients from Voluntern 2017:
