What Is Safari Club International About?
Our members support wildlife conservation efforts throughout the world through the purchase of hunting licenses, permits and the payment of hunting fees. These expenditures are direct contributions which help wildlife in their range habitat. Member dues also support wildlife conservation and hunting related programs throughout the world as Safari Club International (SCI) is a world leader in protecting hunting rights and helping range countries to develop and implement programs for the benefit of wildlife and the native human population which must share and, in many cases, compete for vital habitat. Some of SCI''s many programs include:

Zimbabwe CAMPFIRE Program: Through this program, a portion of all trophy fees are returned to the native population. These fees in turn have built schools, medical facilities, provided food and reduced poaching of wildlife.
SafariCare: A medical outreach program which provides healthcare services to native populations where there is little to no healthcare available. This program was organized and is run by SCI members in the medical profession.
