David Gives Back In Retirement

Meet David Thurlow, A volunteer with Mystic Aquarium’s Fish & Invertebrates Department. He started volunteering in October of 2017 shortly after retiring from his job as a fisheries analyst for the U.S. Coast Guard. 

David feels a part of the team and believes we share a collective responsibility for the welfare of our animals, and takes pride in being associated with their care. The most meaningful aspect of volunteering to him is the opportunity to feed the animals as he believe it is the best way to know our them as individuals with habits and preferences.
