The West Texas Chapter of Safari Club International (WTCSCI) of Midland/Odessa recently awarded $20,000 to the Borderlands Reserarch Institute (BRI) at Sul Ross State University.

During its annual banquet, WTCSCI awarded $10,000 to support a predator-prey study and another $10,000 to support a mule deer restoration project at Black Gap Wildlife Management Area.

 “Since 1998, the WTCSCI has been a consistent supporter of the wildlife program at Sul Ross by supporting scholarships and a variety of research projects,” said Dr. Louis Harveson, BRI director and professor of Natural Resource Management. “To date, the chapter has donated over $150,000, and we are extremely grateful for their friendship and confidence in our programs.”
