BENEFITING: AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF ZOO KEEPERS

EVENT DATE: MAY 31, 2014

THE STORY:

AAZK’s (American Association of Zoo Keepers, Inc.) Bowling for Rhinos fund raiser began on a small scale and is now an AAZK-sponsored North American event raising between $300,000- $400,000 annually. Our goal now is to raise at least $500,000 annually. In 1990, we began by supporting the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (formerly Ngare Sergoi Rhino Sanctuary) in Kenya. AAZK is made up of over 90 chapters nation-wide. Each chapter that participates in Bowling for Rhinos adds to the cumulative total that is raised each year.

I am lucky enough to visit Lewa Wildlife Conservancy each year and introduce many people to the great work that it does for wildlife conservation. But it's more than just rhinos. It's every other species that occupies that same habitat. And they help people too which is also important to me. Lewa provides low cost medical care to the surrounding communities. They support 18 schools providing children not only with an education but also meals through their feeding programs. Lewa is a win-win for both animals and people and is near and dear to my heart for that reason. Please consider donating today. The rhinos (and all the other species as well as the people in the surrounding communities) thank you!
