The Institute for Conservation Leadership (ICL) partners with the leaders and groups we serve.
We are committed to building relationships and a learning environment that results in lasting change for the group and for the planet. We do this by helping leaders be more effective, by building connections between groups with similar goals, and by supporting groups’ progress with planning, fundraising, board development, and other activities.Read our latest Annual Report
ICL’s mission is to strengthen the leaders, organizations, and coalitions or networks that protect and conserve the Earth. ICL uses the tools of consulting, training, coaching, meeting facilitation and research to help groups more effectively accomplish their goals.
Philosophy and Approach
Our philosophy at the Institute is based on our knowledge that constant learning and the empowerment of leaders who care for the Earth and its inhabitants build effective constituencies and action for conservation. We are committed to broadening the base and commitment for environmental protection. From early sportsmen and bird watchers who sought to end the scourge of market hunting, to neighborhood activists who protect their communities against toxic chemical contamination, the effort to protect the health has always been based on people acting on behalf of what they care most deeply about — preserving the planet they love for generations to come.
The Institute for Conservation Leadership seeks to promote multiculturalism and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, age, or religion in its employment, or the provision of programs and services.
