Not only is Tonderai an artist, but he is also a passionate conservationist. He expresses his concern about the rising cases of poaching and cruelty to animals committed by humans. The dwindling number of wildlife, including rhinos and pangolins, deeply troubles him. In response, Tonderai uses his artworks as a clear voice for the animals, raising awareness about their plight.

Tonderai has partnered with various animal conservations in his ""Home"" country and the region at large. He has generously donated some of his artworks to several animal sanctuaries and conservations, where they were auctioned to support animal welfare initiatives. His contributions have made a significant impact in protecting and preserving the wildlife he holds dear.

This much-needed institution will be the first of its kind, serving more than 5,000 households. It will provide essential healthcare services to his community, becoming a cherished health oasis for the people he cares deeply about.
