Because You Live Here!

Registration is now available for 2020 Rhino Encounters at Southwick’s Zoo. These encounters, available mid-April through October, offer the opportunity to meet the zoo’s pair of white rhinos, Thelma and Louise, up close and to even touch them. We offer these encounters with the hope that participants will be inspired to help protect this species after meeting them firsthand.

The majority of proceeds from rhino encounters are donated to rhinoceros conservation, with most of the proceeds benefiting Project Rhino, a program founded by Wildlife ACT. The remaining proceeds support our educational and conservation projects.
