Safari Club International, the leader in the defense of wildlife management, conservation and hunting access on public land, is excited to announce the SCI Hunter Advocacy Action Center, a new service to engage hunters in the ongoing effort to protect their freedom to pursue their passion. This text alert system sends alerts directly to a participant's mobile phone to make them aware of issues that may affect management, conservation, and hunting access on public land, plus national legislative issues, with links to take direct action.
"This cutting edge service will help hunters mobilize against the forces that may seek to curtail their freedom to hunt through reducing public land access, altering scientific-based wildlife management policy or introducing legislation negatively affecting sound conservation policy," says Benjamin Cassidy, Director of Government Affairs for SCI. "Individuals who register by texting 'SCI' to 73075 will not only receive alerts, but will receive instructions and links to take action on issues that directly affect them."
The SCI Hunter Advocacy Center on safariclub.org maintains an up-to-the-minute list of issues that users can register to receive alerts about, or they can simply text "SCI" to 73075 and be notified based on their area code (rates may apply). Users who have an area code not related to their residence are encouraged to click the acknowledgement link and complete their registration with an address so they receive relevant alerts. The system will service the United States and Canada. Visit safariclub.org/hunter-advocacy-action-center to view issues SCI is currently monitoring and register to receive alerts.
