SCI Foundation has spent millions of dollars on conservation in Africa, working with more than 11 species in over 13 countries.

SCI Foundation’s Africa program assists governments and non-governmental organizations with scientifically monitoring and managing wildlife populations, setting wildlife policies and regulations, and regional cooperation to optimize the sustainable use of wildlife resources. We promote how the role of hunting provides benefits to wildlife conservation and rural communities through the principles of sustainable use.
