Why does it make perfect sense that World Rhino Day — observed annually on September 22 — should be celebrated with a nail art competition?

He encouraged the Swazi community to raise awareness of the plight of this endangered species by participating in a nail art contest. Entrants were called upon to create their most memorable rhino-themed designs and share them on Big Game Parks’ social media channels using the hashtag #NailItForRhinos. The winner received a one-night stay for two at Hlane Royal National Park, plus a Rhino Game Drive.
