Interpreting with heart

Volunteer Rene Cortez
When Port Townsend Marine Science Center volunteer Rene Cortez moved to Port Townsend in 2021, he brought with him a passion for volunteering and a vital interest in marine conservation. A lively presence in the exhibits, he is especially fond of sharing his passion for cetaceans, and has a wonderful intuition with youngsters, drawing them out and revealing their enthusiasms.

Volunteers in action

Have you ever been on a Puget Sound beach and noticed a ‘beach closed for swimming’ sign? As one of our citizen science projects, PTMSC is a partner in sampling local beaches to make sure they are safe for recreation.
