ICFC is Canada's leading charity for conserving nature in the tropics and other priority areas worldwide.

Why the tropics?   Biodiversity abounds in the tropics and this is where it is most under threat.  Tropical nature benefits the entire world by regulating climate, preserving biodiversity, and supplying fresh water, rainfall, pollinators, and much else.  Canada's migratory species depend on tropical wintering areas.
