Title: Seeking community guidance for a project aiming to humanely remove invasive rodents Assistant Professor Kevin M. Esvelt, MIT Media Lab, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

A community meeting to discuss ‘daisy drive’ technology for invasive predator removal.

New Zealanders will need novel technologies to meet the nation’s goal of removing invasive mammalian predators by 2050. ‘Daisy drive’ systems could help by spreading genes causing infertility through local invasive populations. Because the technology aims to alter the shared environment, all research should be open and community-guided.

Please join us and contribute your thoughts, questions, and concerns to the discussion!
