Morro Bay State Park is looking for kayak and stand-up paddle boarders to participate in a summer volunteer program that helps protect marine life.

SeaLife is a summer kayak program that runs from May to September and helps make sure boaters, kayakers and paddle-boarders stay safe and respect wildlife in the park.

Participants will get in-water training from experts on how to prevent wildlife disturbance, stay safe on the water and identify and share information about wildlife to local kayakers.

According to a Morro Bay State Park press release, several species in the park are sensitive to casual repeated disturbance in the water, which is why it is important to have SeaLife Stewards during peak seasons.

Anyone who wants to be a SeaLife Steward must commit to a minimum of two shirts a month and each shift is about four hours.
