Bowling for Rhinos

Friday, June 21, 2019

On Friday, June 21st, BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo’s American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK) Chapter will host Bowling for Rhinos from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Circle Bowl at 8878 Florida Blvd.

All proceeds from the event benefit LEWA Wildlife Conservancy, International Rhino Foundation, and Action for Cheetahs in Kenya. Each entry is $20 and includes bowling fees and a free t-shirt. A silent auction will be included in this year’s event as well.

AAZK’s Bowling for Rhinos (BFR) is a bowl-a-thon style event that provides zoo keepers of the world an avenue to raise awareness and funds for rhino habitat and conservation. The fundraiser began on a small scale and is now the signature conservation effort for AAZK. Annually, BFR events raise over $300,000. This year’s goal is to reach $500,000 throughout North America.
