SCI supports numerous conservation projects around the world. The Kansas City Chapter also supports conservation efforts at home and in Africa.
Current Projects include helping to fund a three year study of predator populations in Africa in coordination with PHASA. African countries have not been able to fund adequate scientific research of key predators such as lions, leopards and hyenas. This is the third year of the study. When research is completed the results will be submitted to government agencies to help them craft better regulations to manage these apex predators.
Examples of past projects include "guzzlers" for pheasants and quail in key nesting habitat in Kansas. Guzzlers provide water in traditionally dry areas increasing nesting rearing success.
If you know of a conservation project that could benefit wildlife locally, please reach out to the Board with your suggestions.
