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.

Emma Bowring
Emma Bowring has always had a love of getting up close to nature. She is fascinated with the detail of things, and where possible, how they feel. She is now combining that love for nature with her artwork to further the AFC mission of using art to further the conservation cause.

Emma  has been passionate about animals since childhood. She grew up in South London but was lucky enough to have a large garden with a wooded area at the end. She loved to spend time there searching for small creatures. She had a book on studying nature, which gave information about how to recognise animal foot prints, and dissecting an owl pellet to discover what the bird had eaten; which all fascinated her and which she studied time and time again. Before the age of ten, she moved to Sussex and now with several acres to explore, her real love of nature began. At the same time, David Attenborough’s ‘Life on Earth’ was broadcast, and her eyes were opened to the beauty of the natural world.

"The natural world is an amazing thing. From the humble bee and its role in pollination, to the fact that every time an African elephant takes a step, it creates a home for other animals; as its footprint fills with water. Every living thing has a purpose, it exists for a reason, has a role to play and contributes in some way to making the world a beautiful place … unfortunately with one exception – modern man.
By painting wildlife and nature, it’s as if I become a part of that beautiful world, and by contributing funds from each of my paintings to animal welfare and conservation charities, I hope to undo a little of the damage done by humanity."

By contributing funds from each of her paintings to animal welfare and conservation charities, she hopes to undo a little of the damage done by humanity. 
From each of her original oil paintings, a donation is made to an animal welfare or conservation charity. She regularly likes to support charities such as The David Sheldrick Trust, Orangutan Appeal UK, Save the Elephants and The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. She also works with charities on specific projects to raise funds, details of some can be found on her AFC site.
