HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Releasing GMOs into the environment forces all future generations to inherit our mistakes. We simply don’t understand enough at this time to take such a gamble. Let’s not irreversibly replace our ecosystem in this generation with accident-prone laboratory creations.
Let’s Protect Nature Now.

Problem to be Addressed
A Lingering Lesson
On Christmas Day in 1859, the Victorian Acclimatization Society released 24 rabbits into the Australian countryside so settlers could hunt them for sport. This led to disaster because rabbits multiply like…rabbits.
This well-intended initiative to make people feel more “at home” now costs the government $600 million per year.
This is just one species on one continent. Imagine the impact of releasing tens of thousands of new versions of species worldwide. That is the alarming and unpredictable future we face with GMOs.
The most common outcome of genetic engineering is surprise side-effects. We can’t predict whether our delicate ecosystem, which evolved naturally over billions of years, would survive the assault of these new species.
In the U.S. and around the world, an increasing number of GMOs are not subject to scientific review by any government agency—and reviews that are conducted are often woefully inadequate.
This makes the upcoming planned release of 750,000,000 Gene Edited (GE) mosquitoes in the Florida Keys extremely troubling. They are known to permanently corrupt the gene pool, producing a new version of mosquito with unknown characteristics. And that’s just one of a long list of GE insects in the pipeline.
Releasing GMOs into the environment forces all future generations to inherit our mistakes. The decisions we make now will determine whether they inherit the offspring of billions of years of evolution, or the products of unregulated laboratory techniques that corrupt and replace nature’s gene pool.
Our Protect Nature Now campaign ensures we prevent disastrous mistakes from multiplying across the globe… like rabbits.
Launching our Film Don’t Let the Gene out of the Bottle
Our short film Don’t Let the Gene Out of the Bottle is a powerful tool to convey the seriousness of permanently corrupting and replacing nature’s gene pool. It presents real world examples of GMOs that have the capacity to cause catastrophes. There is a form of GE bacteria that could theoretically end terrestrial plant life, another variety that could alter weather patterns, and (in the final version) a lab enhanced GE virus that is far more dangerous than COVID-19.
Don’t Let the Gene Out of the Bottle inspires powerful emotions and a desire to take action. It will serve as a focal point for coalition building, public education, and recruitment of advocates. A substantial number of organizations will participate in a coordinated launch so that we will reach a wide viewership. The film’s call to action will bring people to our site, where they can sign up to receive additional education and advocacy training.
This will launch our initial grassroots actions to pass laws and resolutions at the local and state levels and to use these campaigns to educate the public and media about this issue.
