Founded in 1969, the mission of the Mzuri Wildlife Foundation is to promote wildlife conservation both in the US and Africa, educate and encourage the next generation of young shooters and hunters; with an emphasis on encouraging more women to enter the shooting sports.

The MWF is a non-profit, tax exempt public foundation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, making contributions to the MWF tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Fair chase sport hunting and fishing is one of Scott’s primary passions. His hunting and fishing experience over the last fifty years includes excursions to multiple countries on five continents. Scott’s appreciation for the intimate connection between wildlife conservation, responsible hunting and hunters rights has lead him to affiliate as a Life Sponsor of Ducks Unlimited, The California Waterfowl Association, and National Rifle Association.
