Texas Parks and Wildlife Accepts $50,000 Check from DSC

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

DSC this year set a record with over $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 DSC contribution was presented as part of the agency’s Commission meeting in Austin.

Carter Smith, executive director of Texas Parks and Wildlife, said DSC 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, DSC executive director.

Funding for DSC 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.
