The sustainability work across the Aquarium organization includes efforts focused on everything from reducing single-use plastics throughout the facility, to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, to improving food sustainability. We are seeking a part-time, temporary, seafood sustainability assistant to lead an evaluation of the food purchased to feed the animals in our care, which represents 75% of the seafood we purchase. The project will investigate Seafood Watch rankings, source and overall carbon footprint. The position will work with Aquarium life sciences staff (e.g., veterinarian, animal care specialists) and external partners to gather data, identify alternatives (if applicable) and make recommendations. The approach to and results from this work will not only lead to improved food sustainability at the Seattle Aquarium but will also serve as a model for other AZA institutions.
