The International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP)[1] is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to furthering environmental and cultural conservation through ethical photography. A project-driven organization, it partners with leading conservation groups, scientists, and policy makers worldwide in order to produce high-quality documentary images that depict both the beauty of the natural world and the challenges it faces.

It was founded at the WiLD8 World Wilderness Congress in Alaska in 2005 by a group of conservation photographer led by Cristina Mittermeier, and since then has developed a reputation as a leading player in the world of environmental conservation. iLCP's elite roster of 103 Fellows[2] (2016) includes the top nature, wildlife and conservation photographers of the world. The main office of the iLCP is located in Washington, DC, and its photographer Fellows reside and work in every corner of the globe.

Since 2005, iLCP has conducted a number of photographic expeditions,[3] to locations where threats to biodiversity are imminent. During these expeditions, teams of specialized iLCP photographers, in collaboration with local and international conservation organizations, produce a comprehensive picture of an area or of a conservation issue. The images collected are then used to bring awareness to the threat and help partner organizations push forward their conservation goals. iLCP also provides image licensing services conservation groups using the images captured by these Fellows. For use in galleries, exhibits, and talks, these images provide the visual connection that help communicate a larger conservation cause. iLCP's expeditions have contributed to a number of environmental victories worldwide, and have helped to heighten the public's awareness of lesser known or documented environmental issues. From presentations to school children, to discussions with political leaders, and from publications in local newspapers to exhibits in the world's most prestigious venues, iLCP works at all levels to replace environmental indifference with a new culture of stewardship and passion for our beautiful planet.

WiLDspeak is a conservation communications symposium organized by the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP). Held on November 16, 2015, WiLDspeak has aims at becoming an annual conference for world's leading nature and wildlife photographers, editors, funders, scientists, and conservationists. The sponsors included: Code Blue Foundation, Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation, Wilburforce Foundation, Cognisys, Voltaic Systems, Nikon, Save Our Seas Foundation, The Summit Foundation, Lowepro, The Nature Conservancy, Carnegie Institution for Science, and Honest Tea
