Volunteers at the Aquarium have a habit of stepping up when needed. That’s why this month, we’re excited to honor Bob Munson as our Volunteer of the Month! Bob has been with us for a few years now, and has recently gone the extra mile to help out in times of need.
Here is what Bob’s supervisor, marine mammal trainer Vanessa Varian, has to say about Bob:
Bob has been volunteering with us since August 2012. He is reliably the first volunteer to arrive every Wednesday. Each week he brings with him a smile and a story. Bob has been a dependable and vital part of our dive crew whether he’s vacuuming the harbor seal exhibit, or diligently scrubbing the stubborn algae from the walls of the MMC.
He’s been flexible with all the changes our department has gone through this year. Bob eagerly offered to come help out extra days when we were desperate for dive coverage. This meant that sometimes he was coming in 2-3 times a week to dive with us! He is a devoted and passionate diver, who has truly gone the extra mile to make sure our seals’ homes are in good shape. We really can’t thank him enough for making volunteering with us such a priority. For all these reasons and more, Bob is certainly deserving of volunteer of the month.
Thank you, Bob!
