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.

ID team at Docent D&D 2004

The In Danger (ID) station was established in June 2000. The section runs a discovery station that highlights endangered animals and shares important messages with the visitors of why and how they should be conserved.

About 10 docents from other sections blazed the trail from its nascent beginnings in May 2000. ID was a popular choice for the trainees that year, and came into its own with 18 members, core and associates, by the end of the year. Since then, ID has focused on a series of endangered species such as primates, sharks, rhinos, elephants, tiger and turtles.
