Educational and humanitarian events are a cornerstone of Safari Club International. The Sensory Safari is a flagship event for the Northern Alberta Chapter.
For individuals who are visually impaired, understanding wildlife is an impossible task with only words as a guide. Through the Sensory Safari visually impaired children and adults are provided an opportunity to “see” wildlife through their sense of touch by touching and feeling.
Supported by the Royal Alberta Museum, the Sensory Safari utilizes donated and borrowed animal mounts, skins, skulls and horns to help visually impaired and disabled people come to better know wildlife.
In 2002, SCI Northern Alberta Chapter hosted the first Canadian Sensory Safari. Every year since then the Northern Alberta Chapter has provided at least one Sensory Safari in different venues.
