OUR MISSION,
OUR HISTORY

Our not-for-profit association, the Society for Hunters in Mauritius (SCIM in short, in French) brings together some of the island’s hunters from all parts of the country, and represents its members for matters pertaining to hunting in the Republic of Mauritius. SCIM was founded in 1921 by a group of enthusiasts who wanted to experience that useful pastime in the best conditions for the common good and with a view to supporting nature preservation. SCIM does not hold or manage hunting grounds.

SCIM has 750 members and is open to new members. It is led by a managing committee comprised of volunteers. We highly value safe and ethical hunting and adequate mentoring for hunters, and we strive to be the voice of our members in reaching out to government agencies and other organisations. Thanks to our century-long experience of hunting in Mauritius and to our eco-friendly ethos and practices, SCIM is a partner in protecting the natural heritage of the island and in various aspects of the national economy.

Experience in hunting and an eco-friendly ethos and practices

A POSITIVE
ECONOMIC IMPACT

Hunting is linked to many other Mauritian activities and domains, with positive effects at the national scale as well as in the regions where hunting grounds are located. Some of these outcomes are : the preservation of expanses of lush areas (including State land) and of the rich fauna and flora that they harbour, a healthy meat market, control of the deer and hare population, ecotourism, as well as employment in all components of that eco-system.
