Drakenstein lion park
Straumann has decided to support the Drakenstein Lion Park with regular donations and to adopt a lion. Drakenstein Lion Park was established in 1998 to provide lions in distress with sanctuary, where they could live in safety, free from abuse and exploitation and be treated with the compassion and respect they deserve.
