The AFC Conservation Artist Award is awarded monthly to honour a member for outstanding artistic talent and extraordinary contribution to the conservation cause. At the end of each year, a prior recipient of the monthly honour is selected for the annual Simon Combes Conservation Award.

The Simon Combes Conservation Award was created by the AFC in February 2005 to honour Combes' memory. Combes, world-renowned painter, author, instructor and dedicated conservationist, was tragically killed by a charging Cape Buffalo while hiking near his home in Kenya on December 12, 2004.  At the time, Combes was the Director of the Kenya chapter of the Rhino Rescue Trust (www.rhinorescue.org), an organization founded in 1985 to protect endangered species from poachers and to help the communities surrounding Lake Nakuru National Park affected by wildlife conflicts.   As this is the first year for the award, the first recipient has yet to be selected.

Dorcas MacClintock
Dorcas MacClintock is immersed in her love for nature and wildlife. Immersed in the sense of having frequent visits with wildlife, writing about many species and capturing their personalities in her sculpture artwork. In addition to being a long-time member of Artists for Conservation, she actively supports the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), the Wilderness Society, the Nature Conservancy and several other conservation organizations. 
"There is no better way to get the feel of an animal than to have one constantly around the house." So wrote an Oxford University biologist. For naturalist, author, and artist Dorcas MacClintock these words are a credo. Animals such as raccoons. kinkajou, coati, flying squirrels, and a prairie dog have been part of her life - some the subjects of her books, others models for her sculptures. Beyond home and studio, the animals of Africa, particularly hoofed mammals, are a continuing interest.

A sculptor who works in plasteline for bronze, Dorcas has a studio attached to her home where two Collies are constant companions, and smaller furred and feathered animals come and go.

After graduating from Smith College, MacClintock pursued a master’s degree in zoology at the University of Wyoming. In 2003 her work was featured alongside fellow AFC member Leslie Delguyer in "Wild Heritage: Leslie Delgyer paintings - Dorcas MacClintock sculptures" at the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum in NY. A long-time member of the Society of Animal Artists, her work has appeared in their annual Art and the Animal exhibitions and tours at museums and galleries throughout the US and Canada. Her work has also been included in juried annual shows of the National Sculpture Society (Brookgreen Gardens and New York City), Art of the Animal Kingdom at the Bennington Center for the Arts, Animals of the World: The Artist's View at the Smithsonian's Conservation and Research Center (Front Royal VA), and in exhibitions of the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club.

A curatorial affiliate at Yale Peabody Museum, she is the author of 10 books on natural history, as well as numerous magazine articles. She also lectures frequently on animals in art. 

Following is a list of the books she has authored:
“Animals observed : a look at animals in art”
This book is more a work of natural history than of standard art appreciation. Included are reproductions of 80 works of painting, sculpture and drawing by nearly 60 artists, from an anonymous cave painter to Henry Moore. 
“A natural history of Giraffes”
“Squirrels of North America” 
“A natural history of raccoons” 
“Red pandas : a natural history”
“A natural history of zebras”
