About 2017 Bowling for Rhinos

The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens’ chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers has raised over $117,000 since 1990 for this international conservation event. We will be holding our 28th Annual Bowling for Rhinos event on June 16th & 17th

In addition to bowling, on both days there will also be a silent auction, raffle, and Archie’s Rhino Rye Pale Ale which is supplied by our friends at Bold City Brewery. We will be offering limited edition BFR t-shirts for sale on both days. 

The event will be held at:
Beach Bowl
818 Beach Blvd.
Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250

Friday: 7 - 9 pm, registration opens at 6
Saturday: 1 - 3 pm, registration at noon (more family-friendly) & 7 - 9 pm, registration opens at 6

Registration fee for the event is $25 per person. This includes two games of bowling and shoe rental. Registration for non-bowlers is $10 per person.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the event go directly to support Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya, Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia and Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park in Sumatra, Indonesia. These important centers not only help to save every species of rhino on the planet, but also everything from orchids to elephants within the sanctuaries. Ujung Kulon is home to the last 50 Javan rhinos in the world!
