Why and how trophy hunting can be beneficial.

Swiss Section of Safari Club International

The SCI Foundation has dedicated in recent years more than 300 million US$ for wildlife conservation, education, hunting promotion and the fight against poaching. Its parent company, SCI was established in the United States in 1973 and is today the world's largest wildlife and hunter organization. HEVLETIA SCI is the direct emanation for Switzerland.

The SCI is not based on emotions, but on scientifically proven facts, to emphasize the importance of legal and sustainable hunting in the management and conservation of wildlife.
