bowling for rhinos

Join the Indianapolis Chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers, Inc in their annual “Bowling for Rhinos” fundraiser on Saturday, April 30, 2011. 100% of all individual donation money goes directly to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (LWC) in Kenya, Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia
and Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park (BBSNP) in Sumatra, Indonesia.

RhinosLWC (formerly Ngare Sergoi Sanctuary) is a 65,000 acre protected area that is home to the endangered black and white rhino.  Ujung Kulon is a 300 sq. mile protected area that is home to the last 47 Javan rhinos in the world!  BBSNP is 3,568 sq. kms of lush tropical rainforest where the Sumatran rhino, along with elephant, tiger, and Malayan sun bear, live.  All three support an entire ecosystem including some of the world’s most endangered plants and animals.

You can pledge your support by:

1.   Bowling: $10/bowler (cash/check payable to AAZK Indy) Includes:  three games of bowling, shoe rental, music entertainment, a chance to win door prizes, discounts for dinner at the snack bar (cash only), and free dessert.
2.   Raise money: Ask family, friends, and co-workers to help you support rhino conservation.  Participants who have at least $20 in donations receive a free “Bowling For Rhinos” T-shirt and a chance to win some awesome prizes!  Whomever raises the most donations will receive a behind-the-scenes tour for six people to see the Indianapolis Zoo’s white rhinos!  Click here for a printable donation form.
3.   Prize Donations: Donate an item(s) to be given away as a silent auction or door prize.
