Volunteer to be an Onshore Volunteer for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

ALL SUMMER LONG! Onshore Volunteers are an essential part of ensuring funding for Sea Shepherd campaigns and carrying Sea Shepherd’s mission to the general public. Their campaign leaders, directors and other staff cannot be everywhere at once, so their OSVs help bring Sea Shepherd’s important message to as many corners of North America as they can. The OSVs arrange participation in events, help to manage and transport our merchandise and informational materials, and interact with the public. Without funding and public awareness, Sea Shepherd cannot do the work that we do. We are wholly funded by donations, not corporate sponsors or political interest groups. Our vested interest is in the welfare and preservation of ocean wildlife. There is no other group or movement like Sea Shepherd, and our OSVs must reflect that uniqueness in the effort that they put into our Onshore Volunteer program.

Hop Aboard and Volunteer to be a Crew Member on One of Sea Shepherd’s Vessels

ALL SUMMER LONG! We are looking for navigators, sailors, engineers, electricians, carpenters, welders, cooks, medics or nurses, small boat operators, photographers, videographers, electronics technicians, radio and antenna technicians, and even a few unskilled but dedicated Ocean Defenders
