Friends of the Big Bear Alpine Zoo

Docent/Volunteer Application


We are looking for volunteers with a strong work ethic, who are responsible, dedicated, and can commit to conservation education, fundraising, and special projects that support Big Bear Alpine Zoo. This volunteer program is for people who want to play an active role in the conservation of wildlife and the preservation of species and habitat. It is for people who want to promote stewardship of our mountain ecosystem.


What do FOBBAZ Docent Volunteers do?
• As ambassadors for the zoo, we use key messaging to engage the public in conversations about wildlife and its habitats.
• We participate in fundraising and special projects which continue to support the zoo.
• We participate in special events that educate the public about the roles all animals play in perpetuating a healthy environment, while also emphasizing the greater role humans play in protecting species and habitat.
• We represent FOBBAZ/BBAZ at community and promotional events.
• We actively assist the organization as it prepares for special events, educational activities, and community outreach.
• We provide limited animal care and diet preparation at the zoo.
• We participate in organizational activities to ensure the continued growth and success of the organization.
• We recruit new Docent Volunteers!
