Zoo volunteers have an interest in wild animals, a positive attitude, and a willingness to learn. To become a docent, all you need to do is attend a Volunteer Orientation Session, fill out a Volunteer Application and return it to the Education Department with your training fee and attend Docent Training.
Trainings take place three times a year; March, June and September.
Applications are available in the Zoo’s Visitor Center, Education Center and online.
No experience necessary—we will teach you everything you need to know.
If you have an interest in wild animals and nature, a willingness to learn, and some extra time on your hands, consider becoming a volunteer at the Salisbury Zoo.
