Rhino populations worldwide are in crisis. Four of the five species are considered threatened or critically endangered. Not only do they face habitat loss and fragmentation, they are also widely poached for their horns. In China, their horn is used in traditional medicine and falsely peddled as a cure-all for ailments of all kinds. In Vietnam it is used as a status symbol to show off the owner’s wealth and connections. As the middle class in both countries grow, an increasing number of people are able to afford rhino horn and the new demand is driving poaching rates up and rhino populations down. Unfortunately, the truth is that rhinos could go extinct in our lifetime.

Bowling for Rhinos was started by AAZK (the American Association of Zoo Keepers) in 1990 as a way to raise funds to protect rhinos at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, home to a large number of both black and white rhinos, and has since expanded to also benefit the International Rhino Foundation and Action for Cheetahs. Through these three organizations, BFR helps contribute to the conservation of all 5 species of rhinos, and all the other species that share the same habitats. AAZK chapters across North America raise over $300,000 annually through BFR, and we hope that 2017 will be a record year!
