Schneider flew to Africa more than a dozen times to visit land, making contacts, seeking sponsors, and developing a 70-page management plan while waiting for grants.

He did all these before moving to South Africa.

Schneider shares, on social media, interactions with wildlife with the support of a personal assistant and a content manager.

As of November 2020, Schneider has 9.4 million followers on Instagram.

He spends up to seven hours a day on Instagram and answers approximately 800 comments and posts in different languages.[3][4] 

 Steve Irwin inspired him to help people connect with wildlife.

In May 2020, UK’s The Times newspaper reported that Schneider is the subject of an animal abuse.

Investigation by South Africa’s animal welfare agency with regard to a video Schneider had uploaded of himself striking at one of his lion cubs with his fist after one of its claws caught on his shoulder.[5] 

He defended his actions and explained the lion was unharmed as he was teaching about its boundaries.
