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.

Dear readers,

the Docent Web Team is restructuring the Library, and images used in the webpages below may not be displayed correctly. As these webpages are being phased out in favour of a new template, "missing" images in the older webpages will not be replaced.

Webpages on animals that can be encountered at the SZGDocent stations will be completed first, followed by pages on animals found outside the Zoo, and finally the ecosystems.

* Unlock sensational secrets of prey and predators roaming the amazing African Plains!
* Learn about the astonishing adaptations and secretive lives of reptiles
* Discover the enchantingly colourful world of monkeys and apes
* Take a closer peek into the hidden secrets and surprises of the rainforest
