This Man From Switzerland Quit His Job To Rescue Mutilated Animals In Africa

11Dean’s real motive

In Dean’s own words he said “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.” This is his only goal in creating Hakuna Mipaka.

12What does Hakuna Mipaka mean?

The name of the sanctuary or club is Hakuna Mipaka which in Swahili means ‘no limits’. This is exactly what Dean lives for and has strived to do with his life. He has no limits and has shown this. He went for owing a luxurious flat with a well-paid job but he left all that to save these animals.

14How is Dean making a change?

The Hakuna Mipaka club is now home to over 100 animals and they all live in peace and harmony. They have employed six armed security guards that keep patrolling throughout the night which does stop poachers from hunting. These are not huge steps and there isn’t a huge decline in animal deaths but this is a good start.

15How can we help?

Dean isn’t a veteran, he isn’t old, he’s only 26 but has a passion for animals and their lives more than all of us combined. This is what we need to have if we want to protect our wildlife. We need to educate people that hunting animals for fun or sport is wrong and we need to try to stop countries from using animal parts in medicine.
