WILDLIFE CONSERVATION

Conservation Efforts never cease, and through chapter projects, SCI Foundation grants and scholarships, and regional programs, members of Safari Club International put their time and resources to use to benefit wildlife populations around the world.  SCI Foundation ensures the best available science is used in wildlife policy and management and demonstrates the constructive role that hunting plays in the conservation of biodiversity worldwide.

OUTDOOR EDUCATION

Education Programs, for both youth and adults, provide a hands-on opportunity to experience the outdoors and spread the knowledge of conservation, wildlife management and the important role hunters play. Programs offered though SCIF’s American Wilderness Leadership School and the International Wildlife Museum as well as through partnerships with the Salvation Army outdoors program, the Boy Scouts and others continue to increase support for conservation.

At the core of these programs is delivering activities and services to those in need.

Help Us Prepare Those To Come For Whatever’s To Come!

Being self-sufficient and prepared and sharing that preparedness with those around us is just who we are and what we do. It is a way of life for hunters… a way of life worth protecting.

Recent events have served to remind us just how important those skills, which have become second nature to many of us, are to the next generation. Please help us share that message with those who may not have heard it or have had a chance to experience the joys of nature and the outdoors for themselves.

Today, more than ever, it is important that we work together to secure the future of wildlife through conservation, education and hunting.
