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.

There are many regular education and conservation events that you can look forward to participating at the Singapore Zoo. These events are part of the Zoo's efforts to bring you closer to the amazing world of wildlife. The activities are voices for the animals and it is hoped that they can encourage you to take a greater interest, and perhaps actions in wildlife conservation.

For those who like to plan ahead, here is a calendar of the upcoming happenings as we know it (Brochure for July to September 2005).

Bring your kids and the family for an outing with a difference!
