National Bowl-A-Thon raising money to save rhino habitats

Mornings

The American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK) Bowling for Rhinos Program is uniting animal care professionals across the country in raising awareness and funds for the conservation of rhino and their habitats.

THE AAZK realized that zoo keepers of the world were extremely conservation oriented and wanted to help save rhinos and their habitats, yet did not have the financial resources themselves to make any significant impact.

Thatโ€™s when the idea came to start a national bowl-a-thon called Bowling For Rhinos.

These fundraisers are organized by volunteers, who 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 percent of all event proceeds and online donations are sent directly to these in rhino conservation areas.
