Safari Club International (SCI) is proud to once again be a Gold Level Sponsor of the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies’ (WAFWA) Winter Meeting and the title sponsor of Friday night’s welcome reception. The 2013 winter meeting takes place Jan. 3-6 in Tucson, Ariz.
“American hunters and conservationists have no greater allies for sustainable use and active management of habitat, than the state game and fish agencies. These meetings are integral to enhancing wildlife conservation efforts and protecting hunters’ interests in some of the most game-rich states for sportsmen,” said SCI President John Whipple. “We are so proud to again be Gold Sponsors for the winter meeting of WAFWA.”
WAFWA represents 23 states and Canadian provinces, spanning from Alaska to Texas and Saskatchewan to Hawaii; an area covering nearly 3.7 million square miles of some of North America’s most wild and scenic country, inhabited by over 1500 premier wildlife species.
Throughout the winter meeting, SCI will welcome all WAFWA attendees to the International Wildlife Museum in Tucson free of charge.
