Unfortunately, nowadays people seem to forget about nature. All they care about is money and because of this greed the world ends up destroying the place we all call home – planet Earth.
We are all aware of the impact of transformation climate, we are all witnesses to the mass extinction of wildlife and we do nothing. Fortunately, there is still hope, because there are still people who love wildlife so much that they will do anything to protect them. And this young man is the perfect example of what consciousness and participation really mean.
Dean Schneider is a 26-year-old animal lover from Zurich, Switzerland. From an early age, Dean learned to love and respect wildlife. And two years ago, in search of his passion and bravery, the young man made the biggest decision of his life. He decided to give up his prestigious job, he sold everything and moved to South Africa, to save the wildlife.
Here Dean started the project he dreamed of – Hakuna Mipaka. A place to take care of rescued wildlife. A paradise on Earth for lions, zebras, hyenas and even baboons, who have been forced to live in miserable conditions. The name of the place means “no limits” in the Swahili dialect, as does Dean’s plans: limitless!
“My mission is to reach as many people as possible and educate them about the wildlife and the beauty of the animal kingdom. I believe in the power of knowledge, passion and visual stories to change people’s perception and save wildlife by spreading the message of respect and love for animals and the value of animals as their essential value to our planet,” Dean explains his organization’s mission.
This kind man has dedicated his life so far to protecting wildlife, because, as he puts it, “we only protect what we love!”
