  1. Dean Schneider is a famous guy on social networks thanks to the story of selling the company, leaving his own career to Africa, putting all the accumulated money to build a wildlife conservation center. The boy from Switzerland has a love for animals since childhood and is fascinated by ferocious species such as hyenas, lions, and leopards.

Before deciding to turn his life in a different direction, Dean worked as a financial advisor with a considerable income. Until he arrived in South Africa to travel, witnessed first-hand the scene of wild animals living, the affection for them grew in the heart of the 27-year-old boy. Not long after returning home, he chose to return to South Africa and start a new life here.

Animals in the sanctuary are not forced to breed, nor are they traded or performed for money. In addition, each animal is periodically checked by a veterinarian. Thanks to the love of their owners, most of them are free to run around, instead of being kept in cramped cages.

For the first two years, Dean’s conservation center operated on all the money he had accumulated. Then, to cover operating costs, Dean established a fund to raise money, mobilizing people to join hands to protect many animals that are at risk of extinction due to rampant poaching.

On his personal page, he often shows photos of himself playing and getting close to many different animals in the reserve. Although he was once scratched by a lion while playing with them, Dean said that he was not afraid because of that, and did not approach them anymore. Even carrying a gun for self-defense, Dean found it unnecessary.
