The Genetic Biocontrol of Invasive Rodents Program, or GBIRd, is composed of experts from universities, non-profits, including Island Conservation, and government agencies who came together to study new technologies capable of preventing extinctions. Our partnership’s goal is to create a novel technology in a mouse that can eradicate invasive mice from islands (and eventually other rodents) to protect native island wildlife. This technology would give conservationists a safer, more humane, and flexible tool than methods that are currently available.
