“We should be working wholeheartedly to try and affect a change that will make it possible for our children, and our children’s children, to survive on this planet.  That’s what is at stake. We need to make the #1 priority in the world … taking care of the planet.  So then we can live better, in more balance, with more joy, and give something to our children that they can give to their children.”

I admire the mission of ACCF to support the protection and preservation of Africa’s wilderness areas, wildlife, and people.  I am honored to be an ambassador.  As a son of Africa, I am committed to supporting the protection, preservation, and development of all good things African – our wilderness areas, our people, our culture, our economy, our health, and the expansion of these initiatives throughout the whole continent – with the same passion and commitment that I bring to both my professional life and current social work. At the end of the day, each of us who inhabit this planet needs to do all we can to support and preserve it so that it can sustain future generations of human, animal, and plant life!

“We don’t own this planet, we rent it, and there is a growing awareness that as a generation we need to materially improve our legacy. An organization such as ACCF, has the substance, reach and field excellence to offer hope and sets an example as to how things can improve. I am proud to be an ambassador, and I know I will be humbled by their ability to work smart and work effectively in the challenging circumstances that face us post Covid.”

Sustainability, education, and love of animals have always been close to my heart. I have been promoting these causes throughout my life and am honored to take this a step further by becoming an ambassador for the African Community & Conservation Foundation.

As a mother, I understand the importance of this for the next generation. When I look at the climate crisis, worsening statistics, and reports of irreversible damage, I can’t help but think of my daughter and the world I’m leaving behind for her. We cannot continue to ignore the crisis. While others talk about change, the ACCF spearheads conservation and anti-poaching projects as well as community outreach programs that make a difference in the African and global landscape. Conservation is a key component of protecting ourselves, our planet, and our future. The ACCF’s values and missions ensure we pay attention to urgent issues, invest in the African ecosystem, and promote practices that will reward us for years to come. I look forward to spreading this knowledge with the ACCF’s help and plan to use my power and influence to further sustainability, conservation, and our planet’s future.

“I feel now, more than ever, we need to expand the message as to the vital importance of our natural places and art and the artist can play a unique role in the effort.  Art can move, reveal and inspire us to seek a deeper understanding of the world around us.  I started the Banovich Wildscapes Foundation as a way to give something back to the world that has given so much to me. The name WILDSCAPES refers to large abundant landscapes…wild, balanced and intact ecosystems. There is nothing more important to future generations than wildlife and wild lands. Special places that lift our minds, replenish our spirits and renew our passion for living. I am proud to work with ACCF on important projects that make a difference in this mission.”

“Especially during world pandemics, one must recognize the importance of groups like ACCF for being those people who not only see and talk about the need for urgent change, but take action even in the hardest of times. We are the lucky ambassadors that get to be taught by ACCF to understand the complex layers of the problems being addressed, how to utilize our resources most effectively and be a real part of that needed change.”

I believe that we are all simply stewards before a Creator- this land, this earth, the people in our lives, the giftings and positions we each are endowed with, what a gift life is that we can each offer that which has been entrusted to us to lift up, to strengthen, to protect, to ennoble. It is a great honor to be an artist ambassador for the ACCF and to offer my drawings and paintings to come alongside of their beautiful work in Africa.”

“Having a wide range of options for organizations to get behind, the ACCF was the clear choice for me. Though my work with gorillas is well-known, being exposed to the truly intricate nature of our planet’s connections has made me aware that intersectionality is the future. My whole heart is behind ACCF’s approach for this reason. From flowers to school children, from gorillas and other animals to advancing technology and boots on the ground, ACCF had made the parts more than their sum in the whole. To be part of this organization makes me feel that I can touch all the areas of sustainability I care about in one place.”
