'Ground Zero' Lab-Altered Mosquito Release

A “multi-agency” project, involving the procurement and deployment of “lab-altered mosquitoes,” is underway in Hawaii. What safety concerns does this effort threaten to overlook?

These questions, and more, are answered by Tina Lia during her guest appearance on ‘Defender In-Depth.’ Viewers, don’t miss it!
