Founded by Cristina Mittermeier in 2003, the iLCP consists of “a group of individuals, each of whom has their own business and projects, yet who at the same time are committed to a common goal and to working collaboratively together with scientists, media, and other conservationists to further conservation throughout the world. The ILCP provides the compelling images that attract attention to the causes for which each of these outside agencies and organizations are fighting.” (From the about page on the iLCP website)

Every year, in conjunction with the World Wilderness Congress and Wild9, the iLCP host, WiLD SPEAK, a symposium of some of the largest names in conservation and photography. The last day to register is Tuesday October 27th. Register here.

The iLCP will also have a gallery exhibition at the FiftyCrows Gallery in January. Check out the website for more details.
