A zoo docent is a volunteer educator is a person who helps zoo guests have the best possible experience. “We are there to answer questions about the animals, talk to the guests about the zoo’s many conservation projects, and assist them any way we can – sometimes just by helping them find the restroom!” the zoo docent told Bored Panda. According to her becoming a zoo docent is quite a commitment, can you image learning all the zoo animal names and ages? However, she said she loves her job “It’s one of my favorite things in life. It’s rewarding to share information with guests and help them have a great experience at our zoo, which we’re very proud of, as it’s considered one of the best zoos in the country!”
It’s not required for zoo docents to have a background in biology or zoology, they learn everything they need to know through an extensive training. “Our training is thorough and I am always continuing to learn new things. We have weekly meetings for continuing education, and listening to the keeper’s talk (as well as more experienced docents) is always educational for me.”
