The International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) is changing the world and preserving our environment one stunning photo at a time. The nonprofit organization brings together top wildlife, nature and culture photographers, and advocates for conservation through powerful imagery.
You’ve probably seen an iLCP Fellow’s work in National Geographic or going viral on Instagram. This elite group of photographers has captured everything from the migration of Porcupine Caribou in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to cutting-edge research in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
iLCP hosts events and expeditions to help iLCP Fellows connect with the organization’s Conservation Partners. Together, they produce images that illustrate the need to protect the world’s most special places, species and cultures.
iLCP also licenses the work of its Fellows to media, policy makers, conservation partners and more. The organization manages its massive library through PhotoShelter for Brands, giving stakeholders an easy way to find and license the perfect image for a story.
