The SCI Foundation funds and manages worldwide programs dedicated to wildlife conservation, outdoor education and humanitarian services. It works closely with SCI Chapters and members to advance hundreds of local, regional and global wildlife conservation projects each year. Take a look at our web site to see some of the ways we're working to help wildlife.
What it Means to be Part of SCIF’s Conservation Team
“We hunter-conservationists understand the role that humans play in disrupting the harmony of the natural world. The consequences of having overabundant white-tailed deer in local temperate forests in the United States parallel the problems that lead to tragic lion attacks on villagers and livestock in the grasslands of Botswana.

As members of a worldwide conservation organization, we are more than passive observers of the natural world. We gain an intimate awareness and appreciation of the natural settings as we hunt. We also work very hard to help preserve the worldwide hunting heritage, which plays such an important role to the use of science and knowledge toward effective conservation efforts and wise practices of sustainable use of our wildlife resources.” Read More…
