Sea Turtle, Inc. is very dependent upon volunteers. Annually, volunteers provide over 4,000 hours of labor. We expect to expand and continue to use our formal volunteer and internship programs in order to minimize salary expenditures while maximizing community involvement. We encourage interested visitors that will be visiting South Padre for a month or more to become a volunteer at our facility. There are a number of volunteer opportunities available at STI. These include:
- Morning Diet & Facility Prep
- Gift Shop Assistant
- Info Booth/Greeter
- Allison Lifeguard
- Volunteer Educator
- Public Relations and Outreach
- Nesting Season Beach Patroller
- Maintenance & Building Assistant
- Student Service Hours
