The DSC Frontline Foundation                   

The Dallas Safari Club is proud to introduce the Frontline Foundation, ‘Standing up for those who stand in front!’ 
The DSC Frontline Foundation, a Texas non-profit corporation, was started by a group of dedicated DSC members with the support and encouragement of DSC. Contributions to the Foundation are deductible under Section 170 of the Code.

The Foundation's Board of Directors consists of DSC members and includes people involved in the professional hunting industry as well as those who appropriate and respect the risk that professional hunters, outfitters, guides and their assistants face on a daily basis. The mission of the DSC Foundation is to provide financial relief to professional hunters and their assistants who are killed or seriously injured in the course of providing professional hunting services or anti-poaching activities. The mission of the Foundation was expanded to include a seperate anti-poaching fund to provide financial relief to government employees killed in the course of providing anti-poaching activities. The individuals we seek to help are often on the frontline of hunts and therefore exposed to the dangers inherent in hunting. These same individuals are unlikely to have adequate, or any, health insurance. They are unlikely to have life insurance or disability coverage. As a result, a serious injury has the potential to be even more devastating to these individuals than to most of the rest of us. The death of a primary breadwinner could have equally dire consequences for most of the people we seek to help. [Read more]

ICC Networking Reception

29 January 2018

Fellow wildlife conservationists:
As many of you know, our efforts at various workshops and meetings including Crucial 2 Conservation (C2C), have led to the creation of the International Conservation Coalition (ICC).
Its mission? 
Our mission is to promote broader public understanding and the critical importance of
modern day wildlife conservation and habitat stewardship. Globally. 
Part of the responsibility of the ICC is to monitor and provide media savvy individuals to help communicate the importance of wildlife management including consumptive management tools.

As participants at the SCI Convention kicking off on 31 January, we invite you to attend our discussion. If you are attending please rsvp by email.

Leopard Census - Questionnaire

Phase 2 of NAPHA's Leopard Census is scheduled to begin in March 2018. In the meantime, we appeal to our members and fellow associations in the farming sector to provide us with more data that can be used for the project.

Please complete the attached questionnaire and return it to Louisa. All questionnaires are anonymous.

The 'Endangered' Leopard

by True Green Alliance

The leopard (panthera pardus) is probably the most wide-spread and successful big cat in the world. Throughout Africa south of the Sahara Desert, it occurs in every conceivable habitat; up to elevations of 5000 meters (Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania) and in rainfall areas of between 100 and 5000mm (Mount Inyangani, Zimbabwe). They are independent of water. Whilst they compete well with other predators, in the absence of other big cats they are extraordinarily successful. Records show they still unobtrusively exist on the peripherals of several big cities in Africa where their prey base comprises domestic dogs and cats. They are primarily solitary and nocturnal by nature but often hunt during the day; and females are sometimes accompanied by their adult offspring. [Read more]

Rangeland Status - 1 to 10 January 2018

Rangeland Monitoring Project

The main objective of the Rangelands Monitoring Project is to provide land users with early warnings of deteriorating conditions, hence promoting pro-active management when marketing and other options are still available. This component of the project is based on satellite monitoring of Namibia's Rangeland. [Read more]
