BENEFITING: AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF ZOO KEEPERS
As you know, Bowling for Rhinos is near and dear to my heart and something I've participated in for many years during my zookeeping career. I strive to be the top fundraiser of my AAZK Chapter not only due to my competitive nature but also because it truly allows me and all the participants to make a visible, concrete difference in wildlife conservation. BFR funds support LWC- Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya, Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia and Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park (BBSNP) and Way Kambas in Sumatra, as wells as Action for Cheetahs in Kenya, which shares a portion of the land mass with LWC. These sanctuaries not only save rhinos (and cheetahs) but also entire ecosystems – orchids to elephants!
