Docent Informations
What does "docent" mean?
We are a young group. The pioneers started the group in April 1997. Since then, we have grown modestly to 93 docents. The Night Safari Volunteer Rangers were brought under the Docent Programme in March 1999.
The docents are self-run by a committee of docents which co-ordinates inputs from all docents and liaises with the zoo management to put into motion the group's activities.
A docent newsletter is issued every two months so docents can keep up with the latest in zoo happenings and docent activities. Sprinkled with inspiring stories and amusing anecdotes, the Docent Deliberations is always a great read! We also constantly undertake research projects to expand and update our knowledge as well as explore new areas of interest.
Singapore Zoological Gardens Docents
About Us
Doceo: (Latin) to teach

The SZG docents are a group of enthusiastic volunteers with wide range of interests, experiences and personalities. We come from all walks of life and all ages, made up mostly of Singaporeans and some expatriates. We are committed in sharing with visitors the mysteries and wonder of animals that we share this planet with.

Our mission is to complement the educational efforts of the Singapore Zoological Gardens and Night Safari by providing special programmes which educate visitors on conservation awareness and encourage respect for animals. The docents run stations and provide guided tours of the Zoo. The docents also support the Zoo in a variety of activities held to promote awareness and interest in conservation.
