Houston, TX – For the fourth consecutive year, WildLife Partners, LLC and Houston Safari Club Foundation (HSCF) are partnering to preserve the sport of hunting through education, conservation and the promotion of our hunting heritage.

Chris Gilroy, Co-Founder and CCO of Wildlife Partners states, “We are very pleased to be renewing our corporate sponsorship with Houston Safari Club Foundation. The business and personal relationships we’ve built with its membership have exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds. This is easily some of the best money we spend annually for our company.  It’s truly a partnership and not just a donation.”

HSCF President Mitzy McCorvey states, “We are proud to continue our involvement with Wildlife Partners. Their program goes hand in hand with what we, as an organization, strive for in the areas of conservation and education.  We hope for a long and continued partnership, working together, protecting the sport of hunting.”

About Wildlife Partners, LLC

WildLife Partners has developed the most innovative conservation program to have ever been implemented. By marrying conservation with a capitalistic approach, we have attracted millions of dollars of investment capital. The investment is directed specifically towards breeding sustainable populations of threatened and endangered wildlife from all over the world. Because these animals have value as living creatures and can easily be sold to other conservation minded people, there is a seeming unending market for them. Breeding these animals can be highly profitable while simultaneously giving participants an emotional gratification that they are protecting wildlife that likely won’t exist in the future without programs like ours.

Houston, TX – Houston Safari Club Foundation (HSCF), as part of its effort to support the future of hunting and conservation, announces the award of almost $30,000 in grants.

Recently, the HSCF Grants Committee and Board of Directors announced the award of multiple grants. The Liberty University Shooting Team received support for their national shooting team. A grant was also provided to the Ridge Point FFA Booster Club in support of their high school shooting team. The Bay Area Council of The Boy Scouts of America received a grant to replace equipment for their shooting program. Finally, a grant was provided to The Tashinga Initiative to support a remote Ranger field station situated on the mouths of the Chewore and Zambezi Rivers.

HSCF Grants Committee Chairman Shaun Nelson states, “At HSCF our primary grants mission is to support hunting, conservation of hunting rights, land stewardship and educational programs that are focused to that end. We have been very consistent over the years in the support of our primary mission, hunting. After all is said and done, we are a club, an organization, and a foundation of like minded individuals who want to see our hunting traditions grow and flourish. And we want to be able to share those experiences with our friends and fellow club members. HSCF will continue to seek out opportunities to give grant monies where it directly impacts our mission, preservation of hunting.”

HSCF has granted over $3.7 million to protect species and habitats the world over. These projects include research, sustainability, species promulgation, wildlife management, water projects, urban sprawl, anti-poaching and other efforts. HSCF is a leading advocate for hunter funded conservation initiatives, which currently make up 99% of the wilderness conservation programs in existence today. Without these programs in place, and the billions of dollars generated in the hunting industry annually, wildlife would quickly become endangered by an imbalance of nature, species overpopulation, habitat destruction, urban encroachment and other threats.
