About Bowling for Rhinos

After a long and successful history on Earth, over 50 million years, the rhino is in crisis. Of the 5 remaining species, all face extinction, with only one reporting significant population figures. Once abundant on the North American and European continents as well, rhinos currently limit their range to Africa and Asia, numbering less than 24,000 animals total:

Bowling for Rhinos is the American Association of Zoo Keepers’ national fundraising event, sending over $250,000 each year to rhino conservation, which also benefits habitats and coexisting species. Beginning in 2009, AAZK is pleased to announce the inclusion of the Action for Cheetahs in Kenya as a recipient of funds raised. Each year the first $160,000 raised goes to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, our original beneficiary. Funds raised over and above this amount are distributed in the following manner:
