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.
Fighting for Hunting
Hunting is under constant attack by anti-hunters who introduce legislation and use the courts to stop hunting. SCI employs staff, contractors and volunteers in a team effort to fight for hunting. SCI operates in the U.S. Congress, in the state legislatures and wildlife commissions, in Canada, in the European Union and elsewhere internationally.Learn More
