About 2018 Bowling for Rhinos
The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens’ chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers has raised over $138,000 since 1990 for this international conservation event. We will be holding our 29th Annual Bowling for Rhinos event on June 15 & 16
In addition to bowling, on both days there will also be a silent auction, raffle, and Archie’s Rhino Rye Pale Ale which is supplied by our friends at Bold City Brewery. We will be offering limited edition BFR t-shirts for sale on both days.
Registration fee for the event is $25 per person. This includes two games of bowling and shoe rental. Registration for non-bowlers is $10 per person.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the event go directly to support Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya, Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia and Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park in Sumatra, Indonesia. These important centers not only help to save every species of rhino on the planet, but also everything from orchids to elephants within the sanctuaries. Ujung Kulon is home to the last 50 Javan rhinos in the world!
