Washington, DC - Today, Safari Club International Foundation (SCI Foundation) and the Wild Sheep Foundation (WSF) announce their new partnership to cooperatively address high priority conservation needs of thinhorn sheep.

SCI is pleased to announce that Delta Air Lines will continue to ship hunting trophies, although some other air cargo carriers have announced plans to stop doing so.  In spite of the efforts of anti-hunters to pressure Delta to discontinue trophy shipments, business at Delta will continue as usual.  Delta released the following statement in response to a petition requesting that the company change its policy concerning the shipment of “exotic” animal hunting trophies:

officials as their trophies undergo inspection.
SCI thanks Delta...
