Rosy periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus) - Madagascar plant from which cancer cures are derived.

Across the globe, ecosystems, plants and animals are rapidly disappearing. As these wild lands, waters and species are destroyed, vast libraries of organic compounds potentially useful to medicine are also lost forever.

Almost all survivors of cancer and other serious illnesses have natural compounds from rainforest plants and other wild species to thank for their recovery. As a member of the Alliance for Global Conservation, CI is dedicated to spreading the word about the immeasurable benefits that biodiversity provides for human health–for both today and tomorrow’s medical breakthroughs.
