Plan Now For Our Exciting
Harry Hampton Memorial Wildlife Fund
unds are obtained solely through private donations and special promotional projects, events and publications and are applied to very specific, yet far-reaching goals.
Contributions are administered by a board of directors comprised of eleven South Carolinians committed to responsible natural resources management and education. Although some of the funds are donated to special projects run by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, they, of course, are not used to replace any department programs already supported by appropriated money.
Public education in the principles of wildlife and marine resources management and conservation is a major thrust of the fund’s purpose, a priority to meet the growing need for better-informed caretakers of our resources in this age of increased urbanization and technology. Other educations goals include: to survey and acquire knowledge of fish and game in South Carolina; to hold property in common for educational purposes; to assist interested individuals, such as writers and students, who contribute to an understanding of wildlife and marine resources management; and to educate and train individuals in fish, wildlife and marine resources management and law enforcement.
To date, much has been accomplished...
The Harry Hampton Memorial Wildlife Fund, Inc. is a private, non-profit corporation which
partners with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources for the promotion of
education, research, management and the administration of game and fish laws, which
will benefit conservation of wildlife, marine and other natural resources in South Carolina.
