The Wild Sheep Foundation (WSF) Convention and Sporting Expo, The Sheep Show™, returns for the 24th show in Reno and will be at the Peppermill Resort Spa-Casino and the Reno-Sparks Convention Center January 23-25, 2014.
WSF is the largest conservation and mountain hunting convention and features hundreds of exhibitors, entertainers and educational events, as well as online and silent auctions and nightly banquets with live auctions featuring nearly $5 million in hunts, trips, art, firearms, equipment and more special conservation permits than any other convention or wildlife show.
With the support of auction bidders, attendees, exhibitors, sponsors and donors, the WSF expects to raise more than $6 million in gross revenue to help wild sheep and other wildlife across North America and around the globe.

The Wild Sheep Foundation, formerly the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep (FNAWS,) was founded in 1977 by wild sheep conservationists and enthusiasts. With a membership of more than 5,000 worldwide and a chapter network in North America, WSF is the premier advocate for wild sheep, wild goats, other mountain wildlife, and their habitat. Since forming in 1977, the Wild Sheep Foundation and its chapters and affiliates have raised and expended more than $85 million on conservation, education and conservation advocacy programs in North America, Europe and Asia. These and other efforts have resulted in a three-fold increase in bighorn sheep populations in North America from their historic 1950-70s lows of approximately 25,000 to an estimated 80,000 today.
