Rhinos Partner with the Zoo to Save Wildlife

El Paso Zoo, El Paso Rhinos Hockey to

Round Up your purchase, Round Up support

   
EL PASO, Texas –The El Paso Zoo and El Paso Rhinos Hockey are teaming up to help save wildlife worldwide with Round Up. Round Up allows guests who purchase concessions or gifts to donate their change to the nearest dollar to help save wildlife, both at the Zoo and the Rhinos games.
 
When you round up your purchase, you round up support to make a difference! Your Round Up change has raised more than $18,000 to help wildlife since 2015.  Now, when you round up at the Zoo or the Rhinos Hockey games, you can continue to support field conservation efforts for bolson tortoises, African lions, Sumatran orangutans and black rhinos – both at the Zoo, and at the Rhinos hockey games. 
 
“Every time you visit the Zoo, you help save wildlife,” Zoo Director Steve Marshall said. “This program and this partnership gives guests another way to directly make a difference by contributing to saving wildlife worldwide.” 
 
Round Up contributions are different from other monetary contributions guest make at the Zoo. Money from the Round Up program goes directly fund field conservation projects helping save wildlife. The El Paso Zoo has supported worldwide conservation efforts through the Round Up program, including bolson tortoises, African lions, Sumatran orangutans and more in addition to funding wildlife conservation projects for almost 15 years.
 
“World Rhino Day is the perfect opportunity to share with the community how their support helps us save wildlife,” said Rhinos Hockey Coach and General Manager Cory Herman. “No matter who you are, or how small your contribution, you can help make a difference.” 
 
El Paso Rhinos Hockey “adopted” Tatenda, a black rhino in the care of the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force, in 2008. The Rhinos have also contributed and sponsored the El Paso del Norte American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK) Bowling for Rhinos fundraiser, which is a national effort to help with rhino conservation.
