Promoting conservation, outdoor education, and humanitarian programs worldwide.
The indiscriminate poaching of wildlife species is a crime around the world. Too often the name of “hunter” is attached to the abhorrent acts of poaching. As ardent hunter-conservationists this could not be further from the truth. In fact, as a group, hunters help pave the way for responsible wildlife management by paying their way and adhering to game regulations. Whether it is the quail hunter in Texas or the Cape buffalo hunter in Africa, hunters shoulder a significant amount of the funding needed to help manage healthy wildlife populations.
Each year, SCI Foundation provides additional funding and expertise to help combat corruption and poaching–especially in Africa. Yet, much remains to be done to make a larger positive impact and see the trend reversed. Collaboration and sharing resources is critical to improve the plight of many species.

SCI Foundation is currently investigating new partnerships to bring advanced drone technology to track illegal activity in Africa and employ scent-detection dogs in the apprehension of illegal wildlife traffickers smuggling items like ivory and horn. Furthermore, collaboration is needed to break down the demand for illicit wildlife parts through public education and outreach.
