For 14 years the Saint Louis AAZK chapter has participated in our annual bowling event.  Over the course of that span we have raised a whopping $102,636; 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.  If you have any questions about this event, please email our Bowling for Rhinos chairpersons at:
