Who We Are

Hunting is an ancient tradition passed down from the earliest times of man to the present day. Hunters participate directly in the natural world and care enough to make sure that it continues in all of its awesome beauty and diversity.

Safari Club International is a U.S.-based organization of more than 50,000 hunters dedicated to protecting the right to hunt and to promote wildlife conservation worldwide. Between SCI and its sister organization, the SCI Foundation, we have put more than $70 Million on the ground for conservation since 2000. In the U.S. and abroad, hunters are part of a system that keeps the rivers, forests and fields intact and maintains the wildlife.

Being part of SCI is my affirmative step of ensuring that the right to hunt is going to be there for my family for generations to come.

Man is born with a natural instinct to hunt and I will fight to keep that instinct alive and protect the freedom to do so for myself and for future generations.
