Programs

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.

HUMANITARIAN SERVICES

Humanitarian Service Programs are also a primary initiative of SCI Foundation.  The programs cover a wide perspective and cross the globe in outreach.  These programs include the SafariCare Bell Family Blue Bag program, Sportsmen Against Hunger, Pathfinder Program, Veterans, Sensory Safari and Humanitarian Service Matching Grants. At the core of these programs is delivering activities and services to those in need.

2020 Year End Fund Drive

The effects of the pandemic have been widespread and far-reaching. Many have been immediate and easy to identify; others will take time and will only fully be realized in the months and years to come like the impact it will have on wildlife and conservation around the world.
It is our hope that we will all come out of this crisis stronger and more dedicated, united in our desire to protect wildlife, ensuring for its future through conservation, education and hunting. Now is the time to step up and unite behind our beliefs and traditions.
