Love people as much as you love wildlife? Apply to be a volunteer Perth Zoo Docent!

The Perth Zoo Docent Association is looking for friendly, outgoing people 18 years and over, who are good communicators, physically fit and can commit at least two days a month from 9am until 3pm.

A free 2 hour information session will be held at Perth Zoo on Saturday 1 April 2017 to learn more about the role and duties of Docents.

We’ll start in the Zoo’s comfortable theatre, then one of our experienced volunteers will walk with you around the zoo and show you exactly what being a Docent entails. Those who wish to proceed with their applications will be interviewed and successful applicants will then be required to undertake an intensive and mind-bulging training course across ten consecutive Saturdays between April and June.
