With the pandemic, the world is now acutely aware of how a single virus – a microbe – can wreak havoc.
Unlike GMO crops, which are well established in many countries, GE (Genetically Engineered) microbes have not been widely deployed yet. Our Protect Nature Now campaign will initially focus on containing GE microbes—and we stand ready to address other emerging threats as they arise.
Governments and civil society are largely unaware and wholly unprepared to manage the threat of these and other next generation applications known as GMO 2.0.

The decisions we make now determine whether future generations inherit the offspring of billions of years of evolution, or the products of unregulated laboratory techniques that pose unknown dangers.
The existential threat posed by the mass release of GMOs demands that humanity looks at itself and nature through a new lens. As our technologies widen in their impact, so too must our awareness and care. We must consciously and carefully steward the evolution of all living beings through future generations.
We hope that you join us in Protecting Nature Now. Your contribution is vital to our success. With your support, we will be able to control this global threat.
Our short film Don’t Let the Gene Out of the Bottle will serve as a focal point for coalition building, public education, and recruitment of advocates. 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.
