Want to help save an entire ecosystem while having fun?
Join the Little Turtle Chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers, Inc. in its annual “Bowling for Rhinos” fundraiser on Friday June 21, 2013. 100 percent of all money donated by individuals will go 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.
LWC (formerly Ngare Sergoi Sanctuary) is a 65,000 acre protected area that is home to the endangered black and white rhinos. Ujung Kulon is a 300-square-mile protected area that is home to the last 47 Javan rhinos in the world! BBSNP is 3,568 square kilometers of lush tropical rainforest where the Sumatran rhinos live, along with elephants, tigers, and Malayan sun bears. All three support an entire ecosystem, including some of the world’s most endangered plants and animals.
