The ICCF Group

Our programs engage and educate high-level decision makers, promote innovative partnerships, and deploy top conservation professionals from U.S. and Canadian government agencies.

We work to ensure the sustained support and collaboration of governments and the private sector for policies and projects to conserve ecosystems vital to our global economy.

The Caucus Model for Conservation

More and more governments are recognizing the success of the legislative caucus model for conservation, first pioneered in the U.S. Congress and replicated in parliaments in Africa, Latin America, and Asia.

What's a Caucus?

Extraordinary Leadership in Conservation

Joining our international network offers opportunities for open dialogue and collaboration with partner governments, businesses, and NGOs around the world. This cross-sectoral engagement facilitates sound policy frameworks aimed at conservation and sustainability, while creating opportunities for the establishment of public-private partnerships to advance natural resource management.

Since 2006, The ICCF Group has brought together many of the most influential nonprofit organizations and businesses in the world who, as members of the ICCF Conservation Council, have taken advantage of this opportunity to advance sustainability and improve the effectiveness of their efforts and investments toward safeguarding our planet.

The ICCF Conservation Council

The ICCF Group convenes the foremost collaboration of corporate and NGO partners to seek consensus on conservation topics and provide expertise to educate policymakers on issues of good natural resource management.

Among our partners are:

“It’s the experience that comes from those NGOs and volunteers that are assisting in this wider effort to come up with long-term solutions that will protect species far into the future…”

Conservation Caucuses: Latin America

We work to support conservation caucuses in Colombia, Peru, and Mexico, advancing the growth of the bipartisan model in the region.

ICCF in Latin America

We focus on a range of issues including water security, illegal mining, oceans conservation, and forest management.

Conservation Corps: Latin America

Our International Conservation Corps works with country partners to successfully build their management capacity to ensure good stewardship of their natural resources.

ICCF in Latin America

The ICCF Group works in the most biologically diverse places in the world to address issues relating to informal, unsustainable mining, a practice that is becoming increasingly prevalent and problematic in the Latin American hemisphere. Illegal mining is threatening biodiversity, the health of local people, and the security of the region by destroying forests and introducing large amounts of harmful mercury into the environment. We support policymakers in adopting and enforcing measures to reduce illegal mining in protected areas, while partnering with national park services to strengthen protected area management.

The Teddy Roosevelt Approach to Conservation

"…The prosperity of our people depends directly on the energy and intelligence with which our natural resources are used."

The ICCF Group embraces President Theodore Roosevelt’s conservation philosophy, supporting not only protection of natural resources, but also their wise utilization in order to preserve the Earth’s biodiversity and habitats while sustaining and improving the lives of its inhabitants.

During Theodore Roosevelt’s Presidency, more than 230 million acres of land were granted protective status. Roosevelt dedicated for preservation 150 national forests, 5 national parks, 51 bird preservations, 18 national monuments, and 21 Federal irrigation projects.
