Join AAZK San Diego Chapter on May 20, 2017 at Kearny Mesa Bowl as we celebrate another year of fundraising for rhino conservation!
What is Bowling For Rhinos? Bowling for Rhinos (BFR) is a national bowl-a-thon fundraising event geared to assisting rhino conservation in Kenya and Indonesia. 100% of all funds go directly to in situ conservation projects, conserving 4 species of rhinos, their habitats, and hundreds of other endangered plants and animals AND cheetah conservation in Kenya. Why Support Bowling for Rhinos? Only 5 species of rhino exist today when once there were over 100 species. All 5 species- the white, black, greater one-horned, Sumatran and Javan are endangered.
Bowling for Rhinos is a fundraiser that began on a small scale in 1990 by the American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK). It is now an AAZK-sponsored North American event raising over $500,000 annually. These fundraisers are organized by AAZK chapter members who are volunteers and donate their time and organizational skills to help raise money to send directly to the places in need.
100% of all donations are sent directly to these in situ rhino conservation areas!
