Lee-Davies has long been an advocate for the natural world, working to highlight the plight of endangered species around the globe through photography, TV shows and social media. In 2010, Lee-Davies founded the social enterprise and media platform Project C: CHANGE, which works to shed light and provide insight into climate change and conservation issues.

Lee Davies’ company, Awethentic Gallery, also works with a number of charities and non-profits, ranging from social impact to conservation, and donates 10% of every purchase made to charity.

In February, 2020, Project C:CHANGE partnered with a variety of changemakers from across the globe to raise funds for charity by successfully summiting Uhuru Peak—Mt Kilimanjaro’s peak, at 5985m above sea level. The 8-day charity climb took several months of preparation and raised over US$150,000 to protect and restore irreplaceable biodiversity and wildlife for the future.
