California is considering the release of nearly 2 billion genetically engineered mosquitoes across the state for the first time -- posing risks to our health and environment.
Genetically engineered mosquitoes are intended to suppress a specific type of wild mosquito that often carries diseases such as Zika and dengue. But California doesn’t even have these diseases and there are less risky, proven ways to control mosquito populations. There is no excuse for GE mosquitoes to be released in California.
Tell the California EPA to say NO to this massive GE mosquito experiment!
