Are you familiar with the far-reaching conservation efforts of Safari Club International (SCI) Foundation? Since 2000, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization has put over $80 million in hunter contributions to work on over 100 conservation projects in 30 countries. And the SCI Foundation’s good works aren’t happening only in far-away places. In fact, 60 percent of SCI Foundation’s conservation work is done in North America.
SCI Foundation is a strong supporter of the North American Model of Wildlife Management and firmly believes that the hunter conservationist is the key to future conservation efforts in North America. SCI Foundation has supported conservation projects in 32 states and provinces involving a range of species.
Recently, the club has focused on interactions between hunted species and expanding predator populations, grizzly and black bear populations, and declining mule deer populations in the West and white-tailed deer in the upper Midwest.
The positive impacts of SCI Foundation are many, as the group strives to preserve the hunting tradition and pass it on to future generations of wildlife stewards.
One highly noble cause is the club’s Sportsmen Against Hunger program, which to date has donated an astounding 1.5 million pounds of venison to those in need. What’s more, through their involvement with the American Wilderness Leadership School, SCI Foundation reaches 80,000-plus youth graduates annually with a conservation message.
