Major Donors and Sponsors


For 20 years the Saint Louis AAZK chapter has participated in the Bowling for Rhinos campaign. In 2021 we tried out bingo instead of bowling and are continuing that again this year. Over the course of twenty years we have raised over $150,000; all of which is sent directly to conservation organizations in need.


Each year the American Association of Zoo keepers (AAZK) sponsors a fund raising bowl-a-thon called “Bowling For Rhinos” (BFR). Over 80 AAZK chapters participate throughout the US and Canada raising over $500,000 annually. BFR funds support LWC- Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (formerly called Ngare Sergoi rhino sanctuary) in Kenya, Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia and Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park (BBSNP) and Way Kambas in Sumatra, as wells as Action for Cheetahs in Kenya, which shares a portion of the land mass with LWC. These sanctuaries not only save rhinos (and cheetahs) but also entire ecosystems – orchids to elephants!  


Bowling for Rhinos events will typically include 2-3 games of bowling, door prizes, give-aways, raffles, and more. Also at the event, you will be able to take part in our large and unique silent auction.
