abstract
Volunteer activities at museums are becoming increasingly popular as a form of social education. These activities are
an opportunity to learn communication skills and gain academic knowledge. They also provide an opportunity for social education for visitors. This study examined how volunteer activities at educational venues affect participants’ consciousness of aquatic life. Volunteers and curators at the Suma Aqualife Park KOBE were surveyed via questionnaires and interviews. These surveys clarified that volunteer activities in Suma Aqualife Park KOBE influence the participants’ sense of attachment to the sea and to aquatic species, their environmental awareness, and their connection with society. The findings demonstrate that volunteer activities at educational venues have educational effects on the participants.
