Code of Ethics
“Recognizing my responsibilities to wildlife, habitat, and future generations, I pledge:
To conduct myself in the field so as to make a positive contribution to wildlife and ecosystems.
To improve my skills as a woodsman and marksman to ensure humane harvesting of wildlife.
To comply with all game laws, in the spirit of Fair Chase, and to influence my companions accordingly.
To accept my responsibility to provide all possible assistance to game law enforcement officers.
To waste no opportunity to teach young people the full meaning of this code of ethics.
To reflect in word and behavior only credit upon that fraternity of sportsman, and to demonstrate abiding respect for game, habitat, and property where I am privileged to hunt.”
SCI is the leader in protecting the freedom to hunt and in promoting wildlife conservation worldwide.
Being a nonprofit organization with dedication to education, conservation of wildlife, and the preservation of our hunting rights, our money goes to these causes. The money to further these causes comes primarily from our annual fundraising banquet. Since the first of the year 2000, our chapter has donated approximately $250,000 to causes we feel are worthwhile. For education, conservation, and humanitarian services, over 80% of our money has been spent in Alabama.
Safari Club International is the fastest growing and most proactive hunting organization in the world. Founded in 1971, SCI has grown to more than 37,000 members and more than one million affiliated members worldwide. Our bond is our love of hunting and wildlife conservation. SCI is a leader in wildlife conservation issues throughout the world, from the great prairies of North America to the savannahs, veldt, and jungle of Africa and to the windswept mountains of Asia.
SCI is a global leader in wildlife conservation issues. Only a few of SCI’s many programs are listed below. For more information about SCI’s conservation programs or to find out how you can help SCI with wildlife conservation, contact SCI Alabama or SCI Headquarters.
Since the beginning of 2002, more than 90% of this money has been spent right here in Alabama. Our trend is to keep more of our money in the state of Alabama. We are, however, an international organization, and there are circumstances where our help is needed in order to further our hunting future in other parts of the world.
