ICFC conserves nature in the tropics and other priority areas worldwide.
Why the tropics? This is where much of the world's biological diversity occurs and where it is most under threat. The "ecosystem services" provided by tropical nature benefit the world at large and are crucial for agriculture, fresh water supply, climate regulation and maintaining biodiversity. (see our Conservation Fast Facts)
How do we operate? ICFC identifies the best conservation opportunities and works with carefully selected local partners. Since 2007 we have achieved lasting gains with our programs in Latin America, Southeast Asia and Africa.
