Animal Ark is proud to support the inaugural Fundraising Gala and Bowl-a-Thon for Reno Bowls For Rhinos. This new event is sponsored by the American Association of Zoo Keepers and Bowling for Rhinos to support conservation efforts for rhinos and cheetahs. You can meet Reno area zoo keepers at this wonderful two-day event at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno.

Rhinos have lived on earth for over 50 million years, but may not survive the next 50. Rhinos are being poached at ever increasing rates for their horns, and this poaching is being conducted by sophisticated international criminal syndicates that smuggle horns to Asia. 100% of the proceeds from this event goes to conservation of rhinos and cheetahs.

Since 1990, the American Association of Zoo Keepers has raised over 6 million dollars through Bowling for Rhinos. All the proceeds go to supporting three rhino sanctuaries in Indonesia, Sumatra dan Kenya, while also raising community awareness with Action for Cheetahs in Kenya (which Animal Ark proudly supports as well).

The event will kick off Saturday, Oct. 28 from 7:00 to 11:00 pm with an opening night gala featuring:

– Formal or Costume Attire
