Tucson, AZ – -(Ammoland.com)- Joseph Hosmer, President Safari Club International (SCI) Foundation announced that on March 22, 2015 Safari Club International and SCI Foundation attended the Alaska Department of Fish and Game Wood Bison Media Day in Portage, Alaska.

Al Maki, SCI Corporate Secretary and SCI Foundation Conservation Committee Chair and Eddie Grasser, SCI Vice President will represent SCI Foundation, SCI, and the SCI Alaska Chapter at the event.

Over the past decade, SCI Chapters and SCI Foundation have helped finance the management and upkeep of the wood bison herd. Now, we hunter-conservationists are pleased to participate in the second phase of this historical event, moving bison to the wild.

SCI Foundation has contributed about $150,000 dollars to this project in addition to the thousands of dollars donated by SCI Chapters. This is a major achievement made possible through your contributions and because of you, an iconic species is returning to its native habitat.

SCI Foundation is proud to be one of the primary groups involved with this restoration of a species and looks forward to continuing to work with Alaska Department of Fish and Game as this process continues. Be sure to stay informed as we will be sharing news, pictures and video footage of the release.
