    SCI Foundation Contributes $330,000 To Worldwide Wildlife Conservation Projects In Last Quarter Of Fiscal Year

    Washington, DC – Safari Club International Foundation (SCIF) announced today that it has contributed over $330,000 in the final quarter of their fiscal year to fund worldwide wildlife conservation projects. SCIF strategically focuses funding towards research and management of large predators and their prey, including game species, principally throughout North America, Asia and Southern Africa.

    “The research programs selected by SCIF’s professional biologists inform wildlife managers and policy makers on critical wildlife management needs worldwide,” said SCIF President Joseph Hosmer. “SCIF strives to ensure management decisions are based on the best available science.”

    “Throughout the year, SCIF contributes over one million dollars to wildlife research, management, and anti-poaching programs. As an international organization, SCIF continues to increase our financial impact for sustainable-use conservation and we hope more organizations can follow our lead,” said Hosmer.

    North American Projects
    SCIF donated $125,000 to fund multiple predator/prey projects in the U.S. and Canada. Conservation projects include caribou in Newfoundland, white-tailed deer in Michigan and Wisconsin, moose in Wyoming and elk in Montana, among others. The results of these projects will help determine the effects predators have on prey, specifically if predation is one of the causes of low juvenile recruitment.

    The most recent project is the Montana elk project, in which SCIF has donated $50,000 to help the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks with its predator/prey research.

    African Projects
    In multiple African nations, SCIF has given over $121,000 to wildlife conservation and human-wildlife conflict programs. The most recent project is helping rural communities of Zimbabwe sustainably co-exist with their dangerous wildlife populations.

    SCIF also continues to fund lion research in Zambia to improve the accuracy of aging lions in their natural environment. Being able to accurately age lions in the field will improve our understanding of the population age structure and assist managers to develop hunting regulations.

    Other Conservation Projects
    SCIF has also awarded over $83,000 in smaller conservation research grants. These grants have funded projects at universities, state governments, and other wildlife conservation efforts. Most grants are in the amount of $5,000 and support projects such as Rhinoceros anti-poaching efforts in Zimbabwe, wildebeest and zebra population monitoring in South Africa and mountain goat surveys in Washington State.

    You have to take donated money in before you can dole it out.
