The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is recruiting members for its volunteer dive team.

The program offers certified SCUBA divers a unique opportunity to dive inside the 306,000-gallon Living Shipwreck exhibit and converse with visitors about the many animals gliding around a replica of the U-352, a famous World War II shipwreck. Volunteer divers also assist with other programs underwater, as well as help care for animals and maintain exhibits.

In addition to SCUBA certification, divers must be at least 18 years old, be in good health and be willing to make time and training commitments. The deadline to apply for the 2011 program is Jan. 31.
