Introducing Dr Dean Allen
The Community Conservation Fund Africa (CCFA) is pleased to announce that Dr Dean Allen has accepted the role of ambassador for our organization. Originally from England, Dean has made South Africa and more specifically the Eastern Cape his home. A best-selling author, public speaker, and historian, he is currently writing a book about how the Eastern Cape became a wildlife tourism destination and is thus well-placed to represent the CCFA in the work that we do.
Speaking of his new role, Dean said, “What a privilege and honour to become an ambassador for such a worthy foundation. The CCFA strives to give back to both community and wildlife in Southern Africa and promote sustainability in everything it does. This is something I passionately believe in. Having interviewed many conservationists in the course of my research, I’m well aware of the vital work that is being done and what still needs to be done to make a difference. If I can help in any way to share this message as a CCFA ambassador, then I’ll be more than happy.”
As a best-selling author, public speaker, and historian, Dean brings a unique perspective to CCFA’s mission of giving back to both the community and wildlife in Southern Africa while promoting sustainability in everything we do. His knowledge and passion for conservation make him the perfect fit to represent CCFA in the work that we do. We are thrilled to have him as part of our team and are grateful for his commitment to our cause.
CCFA is committed to protecting the environment and supporting communities in Southern Africa. By partnering with local organizations and individuals, we are able to develop and implement programs that promote sustainable conservation practices and benefit both people and wildlife. As an ambassador, Dean will play a vital role in helping us spread the message about our work and the importance of conservation.
We are delighted to welcome Dr Dean Allen as our ambassador and look forward to working with him to achieve our goals and make a meaningful difference in the lives of communities and wildlife in Southern Africa.
