Welcome to Perth Zoo

Looking for something both fun and meaningful to do with your time? Become a 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.

Come along to the free information sessions on 27 March (fully booked) and 10 April 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 a comprehensive training course across ten consecutive Saturdays between April and June.

Please register your interest by emailing applications@pzda.org.au or by visiting www.pzda.org.au
