Mission Statement

To conserve animals and their habitats through animal management, research, recreation, and educational programs that encourage the support and enrich the experience of the public.


Our docents are volunteer Zoo educators who are dedicated to teaching schoolchildren and the general public about wildlife, ecosystems and conservation. In sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm about our Zoo animals, they help increase our visitors' caring attitude toward nature.

Docents are critical to the successful operation of the Zoo' s Education Department and the greater zoological community. These dedicated volunteers are members of the Docent Organization, directed by the Education Department. The organization consists of officers, committees and membership functioning under appropriate by-laws to fulfill the Zoo's mission.

Would you recommend Saint Louis Zoo?

by Erin B. from St. Louis, MO (2008-12-23 11:59:37.0)
It is a great way to interact with people from St. Louis and beyond - to share your love of animals and to learn and grow. There is constant on-going learning available, so don't be intimidated or decide you don't know enough - it's a great opportunity!!
