How gene drives could transform pest control

TEDx Youth,  ,  2019.

In New Zealand, 25 million native birds are killed each year by introduced predators. New Zealand has an ambitious goal to be predator free by the year 2050; however, current pest control methods will not achieve this goal. In this thought-provoking and compelling talk, researcher Anna Clark makes the case to add gene drives to the pest control tool box in order to protect New Zealand’s unique native species.
