Bowling for Rhinos

September 22, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| $20

Event Navigation

Come support rhinos one pin at a time by joining the Zoo for the annual American Association of Zoo Keepers Bowling for Rhinos event! All rhinos are under threat and all but one species is on the verge of extinction. Without drastic action, some rhinos could be extinct in the wild within the next 10 years. Show your support for rhino conservation by joining the Zoo for Bowling for Rhinos at Brunswick Riverview Lanes!

A $20 registration fee includes 2 hours of bowling, shoes, raffle prizes, silent auction and food (first come, first serve).

100% of proceeds will go towards rhino conservation through the International Rhino Foundation and the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Here is how you can help Rhinos around the world!


A gift of $10 feeds one young rhino orphan for a day- including skim milk powder, glucose, multivitamins, rice and cubes.

A gift of $25 provides patrol rations – mealie meal, sugar beans, cooking oil, salt, sugar, tea and soap — for a rhino monitor for an entire month. (These basic commodities have become so difficult to find in Zimbabwe that they must be imported from South Africa.)

A gift of $50 will provide numerous days of food- the Indonesia’s Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary will be able to provide five days of food, medicine and care for one Sumatran rhino.

A gift of $100 covers monitoring costs – will fund one rhino protection unit — five rangers — in Indonesia’s Ujung Kulon National Park while they patrol the park and prevent poaching of Javan rhinos and other animals for four days.

A gift of $500 will provide satellite radios– for Tanzanian rangers to use to immediately report indications of black rhino poachers, so that they can be apprehended and prosecuted.

A gift of $1000 will pay for one month of veterinary care- for Zimbabwe’s population of black rhinos, enabling staff veterinarians to rescue and treat animals that have been injured by poachers or caught in snares.

A gift of $5000 will fund construction- of one guard post in India’s Manas National Park, where park rangers will live and work while guarding newly-translocated Indian rhinos.


If you are unable to attend the event, but would like to donate to this cause, wild rhinos would be more than appreciative! Our chapter is striving to make a contribution of $5000 this year and you can help us reach that goal!
