Postpone that mani/pedi Rhino fans!Singapore Zoo has a special request of its visitors on Monday, September 22.
To commemorate World Rhino Day visitors are encouraged to donate their nail clippings to a “Jar of Nails” as a gesture of support for conservation efforts. The campaign has been dubbed the,’The Hornest Truth”.
The jar will be available to the public every weekend for the next month until Oct 19, as part of the zoo’s month-long programme to educate visitors on rhino conservation.
The programme will begin on Saturday, Sept 20, with a public seminar on the rhino horn trade at the zoo. There will also be a photo exhibition on the critically endangered Sumatran rhino and educational exhibitions about rhinos during the month.
