Living Oceans Society is looking for a volunteer with the knowledge of one or several open source scripting language whether PHP, Java script, CSS, HTML to help improve/finalize an existing website.  This is an interactive map that aims at showcasing the local sustainable seafood market.  It would be a great opportunity to learn and expand your skills by working collaboratively with the website designer on a local project.  

Living Oceans is also looking for a researcher with excellent general research and writing skills, using internet and library resources, to assist the Energy and Climate Change programme.  Please reply with a resume and a writing sample, using the form below.

We have ongoing needs for people who are interested in learning about our programmes and sharing that knowledge with others at tabling events, festivals and fairs throughout the year.  If you enjoy meeting new people and introducing them to some of the most pressing marine environmental issues of the day, we can use your help!  Tabling events come up spring through fall and are usually on weekends.  Occasionally, we book into a trade show or other event that is held weekdays and evenings.  You will generally be working with a staff member and you'll always get some basic training for the particular display or event.

We sometimes need help with our newsletters that go out twice a year - particularly with the layout, which currently happens using Affinity Publisher, though other programs could be used. This work could happen remotely, so please let us know if you have this sort of experience and may be able to help us from time to time.
