Each year every chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers hosts a "Bowling for Rhinos" fundraiser that to date has collectively raised over $6 million. 100% of money raised supports the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and the International Rhino Foundation, among other organizations, helping to conserve the 4 extant species of rhino left in the natural world. For more information on this, you can visit https://www.aazk.org/bowling-for-rhinos/
Tickets are $15 and include 2 games and shoe rental
If your team is competing, your team may have up to six bowlers and at least half of your team must work or volunteer at the zoo.
