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.
On June 6, 2015, AAZK San Diego will be hosting the 25th annual Bowling for Rhinos event at Kearny Mesa Bowl in Clairemont, San Diego, CA.
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 nearly $500,000 annually. AAZK realized that the zoo keepers of the world are extremely conservation oriented and want to help save rhinos and their habitats, yet do not have the financial resources themselves to make any significant impact. That’s when the idea to start a national bowl-a-thon called Bowling For Rhinos emerged.
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. Since all the people involved are volunteers, 100% of all donations are sent directly to these in situ rhino conservation areas!
Everyone is invited to participate and donate to this great cause! Learn more about BFR at www.sdaazk.org!
