Safari Club International

The Safari Club International is the leader in protecting the freedom to hunt and promoting wildlife conservation worldwide. These primary missions are supported through the many facets of the organization. Attendees of SCI’s 46th Annual Hunters’ Convention can help support the missions of SCI by participating in the various sweepstakes and auctions held during the convention that offer top of the line guns, once in a lifetime hunts and fishing excursions, the finest artwork and more. The money raised during the convention provides the majority of the crucial funds needed to help preserve our hunting heritage and enable conservation efforts to occur around the globe.

Over 10 million dollars was raised during the 2017 Convention to fund SCI and SCI Foundation programs. Efforts included more than $300,000 for anti-poaching programs in Africa, as well as the Global Wildlife Whistleblower program to help combat wildlife trafficking. The SCI Foundation supports a number of scientific research and wildlife conservation efforts, both in the United States and abroad.

Since 2000, SCI has spent $140 million protecting the freedom to hunt through policy advocacy, litigation, and education for federal and state legislators to ensure hunting is protected for future generations. Through direct involvement and partnerships with like-minded organizations, SCI has become a political force in Washington, D.C. and other world capitals. By attending the 2018 convention, members can help ensure SCI’s ability to continue as an advocate for sportsmen worldwide.

Safari Club International's 46th Annual Hunters' Convention is to be held January 31 – February 3, 2018 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
