Help us raise money for rhinos and get something awesome doing it! We have some really amazing items that include “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunities, day trips, art, and more. Â In addition to bidding on items, you can also donate to rhino conservation through our online auction website.
The auction is live starting now until July 25th 11:45pm. Â TheÂ auction will be extended by 3 minutes for each new bid during its final 3 minutes, with a maximum 30 minute extension.
Please please forward the link to our online auction to your volunteer department, staff email group, friends, family and post on your social media pages. Â 100% of the proceeds from this week-long fundraiser will be donated to theÂ Lewa Wildlife Conservancy
Â in Kenya. Â In the past year, theÂ black Western rhino was declared extinct
. Â Other species of rhino are dangerously close to the same fate. Â Your donations make a difference.

We encourage you all to reach out to family and friends for donations to our fundraiser. Â We’ve taken the hard part out of it and have written the pledge that you can send out:
Please join me and the Bay Area Chapter for the American Association of Zoo Keepers (BAAAZK) in helping to protect rhinos and the wildlife that share their habitat. ByÂ participating with BAAAZK and its national organizationâ€™s biggest fundraiser “Bowling For Rhinos,” we will raise money and awareness for rhino conservation across the world. 100% of funds raised go to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and Action for Cheetahs in Kenya, support efforts to help the Javan rhino in Ujung Kulon National Park, and the Sumatrain rhino in Bukit Barisan Selatan and Way Kambas National Parks through the International Rhino Foundation. Â The money raised helps pay for the park rangers who protect the wildlife in the parks and their equipment. For more information on how AAZK supports Lewa visit their 2014 report for AAZK<https://www.aazk.org/wp-content/uploads/Lewa-2014-Report-For-AAZK-JULY.pdf>.
