BENEFITING: AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF ZOO KEEPERS
EVENT DATE: Jul 22, 2011
Each year the American Association of Zoo keepers (AAZK) sponsors a fund raising bowl-a-thon called “Bowling For Rhinos” (BFR). Over 60 AAZK chapters participate throughout the US and Canada raising between $200,000- $300,000 annually. But our goal is raise $500,000 annually. BFR funds support LWC- Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (formerly called Ngare Sergoi rhino sanctuary) in Kenya, Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia and Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park (BBSNP)and Way Kambas in Sumatra. These sanctuaries not only save rhinos but also these entire ecosystems!
