Promoting conservation, outdoor education, and humanitarian programs worldwide.
Hunters once again demonstrated their commitment to international wildlife stewardship by participating in Safari Club International Foundation’s 2013 Conservation Auction in January. The funds generated go directly back to tribal, state and provincial natural resource agencies to conduct research and management projects in the field. Anti-poaching efforts, sustainable development and local community involvement initiatives, which are vital to the continuation of robust game populations, are supported by the sale of these auction items. Offering such tags facilitates relationships with biologists and increases the visibility of the conservation contributions of hunting. A breakdown of the tags that were available and the resulting revenue can be found below:
$45,000 California Desert Bighorn
$36,000 Zimbabwe Elephant, Cape Buffalo & Plains Game Package
