The International Conservation Fund is a U.S. based, volunteer-run 501(c)3 charity dedicated to conserving natural ecosystems and species in the tropics and other priority areas.

What & Where

Direct action to reduce threats and conserve terrestrial and marine ecosystems in Latin America, Asia and Africa.


This is where nature needs us most!


ICF works in partnership with the International Conservation Fund of Canada (ICFC), which in turn works with capable field partners based in the areas where we work. This keeps our administrative costs low and takes advantage of ICFC's experience and capabilities. ICFC was the top-ranked conservation organization in Canada by the Financial Post charity ratings.
