We have been long-time supporters of BFR but our recent trip to Kenya has moved us to do even more to protect rhinos. PLEASE HELP! Thank you  See more

BENEFITING: AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF ZOO KEEPERS

EVENT DATE: Jun 22, 2012

Dawn & Lori Neptune-Rawlings

THE STORY:

 

In 1990 the American Association of Zoo Keepers, Inc. (AAZK) realized that the zoo keepers of the world were extremely conservation oriented and wanted to help save rhinos and their endangered habitats, yet did not have the financial resources themselves to make any significant impact. That’s when the idea came to start a national bowl-a-thon called"Bowling For Rhinos".

The beauty of the idea is that these fundraisers are organized by volunteers, who donate their time and talents to help raise money for the places in need. Since all the people involved are volunteers, 100% of all donations are sent directly to these field conservation areas!

In Kenya Africa, BFR supports the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy where our donations help protect both black and white rhinos as well as countless other rare species native to East Africa. In Indonesia BFR supports the remaining Javan Rhinos at Ujung Kulon National Park and the Sumatran Rhinos in Bukit Barisan Selatan and Way Kambas National Parks through the International Rhino Foundation. We also support Action for Cheetahs in Kenya. Cheetahs share much of the same habitat as rhinos and by working to conserve cheetahs we are also saving rhinos and the countless other species that call that habitat home.

An additional component to successful species conservation and the reason AAZK supports these unique programs, is that each project has very strong community development. The local people who live in these regions benefit through supported schools and literacy programs, water projects, women's business programs and health clinics just to name a few. So in reality you are not only saving rhinos and all of the other species that share the same habitat but are improving the lives of people in surrounding communities as well. It's a win-win situation... for animals and people.

Save a rhino-Save the world!

Now time is of the essence. Rhinos need our help more than ever! The illegal trade in rhino horn is a multi-million dollar industry based on myth and operated by organized crime syndicates. Poaching has steadily escalated to alarming rates- every 18 hours another rhino is lost. In response to this global crisis, we can do something to help. Your tax deductible donation is used to fence in and protect these areas, purchase planes and vehicles to curtail poaching, translocate rhino into sanctuaries/parks, purchase cameras for censusing, salaries for anti-poaching security guards, patrol stations/equipment and training of park guards in anti-poaching skills.
