rhinosIn an effort to help protect critically endangered rhino species from extinction, zoo keepers throughout the nation are sponsoring the twenty-third annual National “Bowling For Rhinos” fundraiser and asking for your help. One hundred percent of all proceeds will go directly to support rhino conservation efforts in Africa and Southeast Asia and will also help to protect the other animal and plant species that share their same habitat. Some of these species include elephants, zebras, tapirs, lions and tigers. Along with saving these ecosystems, you will also be helping to provide people in low currency nations with jobs and an education for their children. Locals in both regions are hired to protect the rhinos from poachers. To date, this annual bowl-a-thon has raised over 4 million dollars!
