Setting the international conservation agenda in Washington, D.C.

The ICCF brings together leaders at the highest level of government, business, and the NGO community. We set the conservation and environmental agenda by coordinating people with scientific expertise, organizations that support and manage programs on the ground, and policymakers who shape legislation.

The International Conservation Caucus Foundation (ICCF) is a 501(c)(3) educational foundation promoting the projection of U.S. leadership for international conservation worldwide.

Domestically the U.S. has set the world’s gold standard for landscape-scale conservation dating back to the leadership of President Theodore Roosevelt. In today’s 21st century, the U.S. needs to exert responsible and forward-thinking leadership in conservation policy and in providing the export of conservation expertise to the world’s emerging nations.

We work to advance U.S. leadership in international conservation through public and private partnerships and to develop the next generation of conservation leaders in the U.S. Congress.

For a decade, the mission of ICCF has been to serve as the nucleus for Congressional leadership for U.S. international conservation, in concert with the protection of U.S. business and national security interests worldwide. ICCF underpins the leadership of the bipartisan U.S. Congressional International Conservation Caucus (ICC), which comprises more than a third of the U.S. Congress. We educate policymakers on international issues of natural resource management throughout the legislative process. We are pro-business, pro-development and pro-environment. We are committed to market-oriented solutions for conservation and sustainability worldwide.

ICCF Financials

In its mission to educate about issues of conservation worldwide, ICCF has and continues to receive the financial support of its Conservation Council, a collaboration of public and private sector organizations. Our strong record in our commitment toward sound, market-oriented, conservation policies has been, over the past decade, made possible by upholding and applying the highest standards in accountability, effectiveness, and transparency.
