SCI and SCIF announced today that they are working with state and local officials in the hurricane-ravaged areas. SCI chapters and members are on the ground, helping with hurricane relief as they continue to raise money needed to help both humans and wildlife in the Lone Star state.
The Houston the Texas Brush Country Chapters are right in the middle of the areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. Since the storm first hit, they have been on the ground, working tirelessly to rescue people in need and are now starting the recovery process. The costs of these efforts are tremendous.

SCI Foundation funds and directs worldwide programs dedicated to wildlife conservation and outdoor education.
SCI Foundation ensures the best available science is used in wildlife policy and management, and demonstrates the constructive role that hunting and hunters play in the conservation of biodiversity worldwide. The organization is “First for Wildlife,” investing millions of dollars into wildlife conservation and education every year.
Conservation Efforts never cease, and through chapter projects, SCI Foundation grants and scholarships, and regional programs, members of Safari Club International make a difference in the life of the environment and the animals that live there.
EducationPrograms, for both children and adults, provide a hands-on opportunity to experience the outdoors and to spread the knowledge of conservation and wildlife management. One of these education programs is Sensory Safari, a program in which the blind can learn about nature through touch exhibits. SCI Foundation also opened the International Wildlife Museum in Tucson, Arizona, to increase knowledge of, and appreciation for, the diverse wildlife of the world.
Humanitarian Service Programs are also a primary initiative of SCI Foundation. Through Sportsmen Against Hunger and SafariCare, food and supplies are provided to those in need, both in our backyard and in remote places of the world. The Disabled Hunter program fosters opportunities for disabled sportsmen and women to experience the hunting tradition. SafariWish grants hunting related wishes to those dealing with terminal or life-threatening illnesses.
