SIMRES needs your help for events, projects and administration. If you have a keen interest in the marine environment, a sharable skill, and are willing to dedicate some time to help us meet our objectives, please fill out the form below. We’d love to hear from you. 



Help our leadership team write funding grants for scientific research and education. Experience with government, institutional and corporate grant writing would be very helpful.


We have a need for mini documentary-style videos to show our projects and events. Do you have a love for creating storytelling video content with amazing natural environments, whales and people who make a difference? A portfolio or examples of your work would be helpful.



• You don’t have to be a resident of Saturna to volunteer, however we prefer that you have been here before or are able to visit periodically. We believe it’s important to have a sense of place and community to be successful.


• The time requirements depend on the position you apply for and whether it’s an ongoing job or a time-limited project or event. We are aware that these are volunteer positions, not full-time jobs.


• Are you the the right person we didn’t know we needed? If you have a special skill or body of experience that you believe will be helpful to SIMRES, but such a position is not shown here, please contact us. 


• These are presently volunteer positions, however, sometimes we are able to raise funds to cover wages associated with these positions. Though they may not pay the rent, these are deeply satisfying endeavours with a highly engaged and dedicated group of people.
