OI seeks volunteers

Oceanic Institute, an HPU affiliate, seeks volunteers to assist with the giant clam project at its Waimanalo campus.

Volunteers will work with the Fisheries and Environmental Sciences Department. Duties include clam maintenance, data collection, and data entering.

Additional help with off-campus field work may also be incorporated if students are interested.

This is a great opportunity to work closely with these delicate marine animals and to gain experience at Oceanic Institute. E-mail or call Tom Ogawa for more information: togawa@oceanicinstitute.org, 259-3169.
