AUSTIN -- Dallas Safari Club (DSC) leaders recently delivered a $50,000 check to support Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) programs for public hunting, conservation, education, state parks, and law enforcement.

Dallas Safari Club set a record this year with more than $1 million in grants for conservation, education, and hunter advocacy efforts worldwide. Texas Parks and Wildlife is the largest single recipient, with 2012 grants totaling $67,500. The latest Dallas Safari Club contribution was presented as part of the agency’s commission meeting in Austin.

Carter Smith, executive director of Texas Parks and Wildlife, said Dallas Safari Club grants are helping to fund public hunting and land-lease initiatives, hunter education, and youth outreach efforts, Operation Game Thief, life insurance for Texas game wardens, and a variety of operational expenses across the agency.

“We’re grateful for the generous contribution and our longstanding and important partnership with DSC,” said Smith.

“DSC continues to grow as a major force for wildlife, habitat, and hunting around the globe, but it’s always gratifying to help with important work right here at home,” said Ben Carter, Dallas Safari Club executive director.

Funding for Dallas Safari Club grants is generated by its annual convention and expo, always held the first Thursday-Sunday in January. The 2013 event is slated for Jan. 3-6.
