Bowling for Rhinos

Save endangered wildlife in a fun night of bowling that is perfect for the whole family!
 
The American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK) sponsors an annual fundraiser bowl-a-thon called Bowling for Rhinos (BFR). Join zoo keepers and employees at one of two sessions for bowling and the opportunity to discuss the animals they care for. Over 60 AAZK chapters have raised more than $4 million since 1990 to support three conservation projects!
