Although we would love to host another Bowling for Rhinos event at Kearny Mesa Bowl, this year will look a little different as we celebrate another year of fundraising for rhino conservation!
NEW THIS YEAR:
AAZK San Diego (AAZKSD) will be hosting events in the following months to raise funds & awareness for rhino conservation, connect with the community, and have a good time!
WHAT IS BOWLING FOR RHINOS?
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 all 5 species of rhinos, their habitats, and hundreds of other endangered plants and animals AND cheetah conservation in Kenya. This year, AAZKSD is hosting events (in-person & virtual) to raise funds!
WHY SUPPORT BFR?
Once there were over 100 species of rhino in existence. All five species of rhinos surviving in the wild today are listed under the Endangered Species Act: black, white, greater one-horned, Sumatran and Javan.
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 over $500,000 annually. 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. 100% of all donations directly benefit the conservation actions of AAZK and our in-situ partners!
