Bowling For Rhinos

July 19, 2014                      7 p.m.                 Heritage Lanes

Each year, the Zoo's chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK) invites the public to hit the bowling lane during Bowling For Rhinos, an event that raises money for rhino conservation. Although a fun event, Bowling For Rhinos has an important mission. Out of the 100 species of rhinos that formerly roamed the Earth, only five exist today, and all are considered endangered. Some of these species have fewer than 300 animals living, making extinction a real possibility unless conservation efforts can help turn the fate of these mammoth pachyderms.

The Zoo's AAZK Chapter is one of more than 60 organizations in the United States and Canada that participates in Bowling For Rhinos annually. One hundred percent of the proceeds from Bowling For Rhino benefits rhino conservation projects in Asia and Africa.  With the help of the dedicated citizens of Oklahoma, the Zoo has raised $208,726 for rhino conservation through this event, which is more than any organization!
