Share Bowling for Rhinos 2019

Event Details

The American Association of Zoo Keepers San Diego chapter (AAZK San Diego) has participated in Bowling for Rhinos (BFR) since it began in 1990.
Bowling for Rhinos has raised over $4 million for rhino conservation since 1990.
AAZK San Diego has donated over $275,000 to this amazing conservation cause
making us one of the leading supporting chapters.
100% of monies raised will be donated to the AAZK rhino conservation efforts. BFR funds support Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, the International Rhino Foundation, and Action for Cheetahs Kenya. Through these organizations we are able to help black and white rhinos in East Africa, Javan and Sumatran rhinos in Asia, as well as cheetahs and countless other species that share all of their habitats.
Join AAZK San Diego at our 29th annual rhino fundraiser where 100% of the profits raised go directly towards rhino conservation. The event includes bowling, silent auction, special drawings, and more fun than any fundraiser should contain!
