Become a Sanctuary Steward

We started the Sanctuary Stewards program in 1996 to further engage members of the Monterey Bay community in issues surrounding marine conservation and advocacy. These dedicated volunteers are at the core of our organization. Stewards are highly trained volunteers who have gone through an intensive four-week course and are qualified to represent Save Our Shores throughout the community.

Interested in becoming a Sanctuary Steward?

Sanctuary Stewards are trained adult volunteers (18 years or older) that lead events on behalf of Save Our Shores, and commit to volunteering for at least one event per month for a minimum of six months.

*Our next training will be held in Winter 2025.
