Three years ago, SCI Foundation (SCIF) helped the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Wildlife Conservation release 130 wood bison back into the lower Innoko/Yukon River area of Alaska. The project’s goal was to reintroduce to the wild a species that had been lost over a century ago through changing ecological factors, unregulated hunting and a later mixing with plains bison. Shortly after being released, the first wild bred, wild-born wood bison calf was born in the United States in over 100 years. Now, having survived their third hard winter, the wood bison are thriving with new calves continuing to be born into the growing herd.

SCI Foundation is proud to announce a new partnership between our Foundation, the Ellen and Larry Bell Family, and the International Wildlife Fellowship Foundation (IWFF) aimed at helping those in need in Africa through an expansion of the successful Safari-Care Bell Family Blue Bag program. This new partnership provides Blue Bags and funding for IWFF to purchase and distribute items that will aid in the humanitarian relief and social responsibility efforts for needy individuals in Africa. The funds were provided by SCI Foundation from a special grant provided by the Bell Family.

Friday evening, January 11, 2019 one remarkable hunter, Cory McGregor will be awarded the SCI Foundation Pathfinder Award. A Pathfinder is “one who finds a way or finds a new route.” SCI Foundation Pathfinders are people who are faced with challenges in life that cause them to find new ways to live and to overcome the challenge of being engaged in outdoor activities. These hunters also give of their time to help their communities and promote hunting for other disabled hunters.
