3Why Africa?

The reason Dean chose Africa is because of the abundance of wildlife there that needs help. Africa is the one place poachers love to hunt in.

Poachers know the market for animal parts so they throw around meat that is poisoned. Animals eat this meat and fall sick or get paralyzed in less than 15 minutes after which they are subjected to intense torture. Poachers cut off the animal’s snout and or paws and then leave the rest of the carcass.

5What animals are hunted?

Practically every animal in Africa is hunted by poachers. Their parts are sold as memorabilia or used in lotions or medicines. This is why Dean wanted to create the sanctuary. Claws, teeth, tusks, snouts are sold on the black market while other parts of the animals are sold to countries that utilize them in making medicines that are illegal.
