Why Waterfowl Hunters Should Care About Safari Club International

Most waterfowl hunters inherently consider themselves ardent conservationists and stewards of our coveted resources. After all, if we aren’t out there protecting wetlands and wildlife, how are we to ensure abundant populations of ducks and geese to hunt each fall? And while joining our local Ducks Unlimited or Delta Waterfowl chapter is a viable way to stay connected to the issues that directly affect our own flyway, there is another way to get involved in matters that are affecting the sport and our rights on a much larger scale.




Safari Club International (SCI) is America’s leading hunter advocacy group and has been in the business of protecting our freedom to hunt while promoting wildlife conservation worldwide for almost 50 years. Providing an image and influence as hunters themselves, members of SCI are deeply and directly involved in representing the best interests of the hunting, shooting, and sporting communities. Most notably, SCI has been a major player in protecting the importation and travel of game harvested abroad. And while you may or may not ever visit Africa for the opportunity to bag a kudu, you may go there for waterfowl, and by supporting SCI, you are showing support for wildlife conservation and sound scientific management principles.

Mentorship Matters

Recruit. Retain. Reactivate. Unless you’ve been cut off from the world while holed up at duck camp for the past few migrations, the R3 Movement and its ebullient buzzwords have become the model to preserve the legacy of our hunting lifestyle for future generations. Recruiting new hunters of various demographics from all walks of life has become the mission of each and every conservation organization and non-profit entity in the hunting space today. As a forerunner in this effort, SCI strives to build and strengthen its partnerships with like-minded organizations to turn the declining trend of hunter numbers around. SCI works with local and national youth groups and wildlife organizations in addition to sponsoring shooting sports and hunter education activities through grants and donations.
