About Dean Schneider
Dean Schneider dedicated his life to present and protect Wildlife. His mission is to bring animals into people's hearts because he says "we only protect what we love".
At a very young age, this Swiss citizen developed an immense fascination for the animal world. Animal documentaries and the support of various animal protection organizations have always been a big part of his life. Through this incredible love to animals, he learned to understand these wonderful creatures as well as gaining the ability to build a special bond with them. Schneider's heart belongs entirely to the Wildlife.
Hakuna Mipaka is a way of living which originated from the 5 core values: freedom, loyalty, appreciation, brotherhood and boldness. 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 in order to change peoples’ perceptions and save the wildlife by spreading messages about respect and love for animals as well as about their essential value for our planet.
