Our mission is to advance conservation governance by building political support, providing on-the-ground solutions.

What Makes Us Different

The ICCF Group serves a congressional caucus model to build political will around unifying topics of natural resource management. Our programs engage political decision makers in the United States and partner nations, and deploy top conservation professionals from U.S. and Canadian governments. In this capacity we work to ensure the sustained buy-in of governments for the efficacy of projects to conserve ecosystems vital to our global economy.
