Will you give our forests the gift of a future free from deadly GMO trees?

Even though most scientists have dropped support for the failed GE American chestnut trees known as Darling 54/58, researchers at SUNY-ESF are barrelling ahead to win approval from the USDA to release these defective GE trees into forests to contaminate wild chestnuts.

We need your help to continue our pressure on ESF researchers to stop this foolhardy mission to advance failed science and risk the health of our forests. The release of these defective GE chestnuts into forests could further devastate the wild American chestnut.

Please donate to help us end this imminent threat.

Other plans we have to ramp up the pressure against GE trees:

• GJEP is collaborating with the Indigenous Environmental Network on workshops at an international gathering of Indigenous Peoples in August.

• GJEP will attend the IUFRO Tree Biotechnology Conference in August. We will remind IUFRO that GE trees will never be accepted by the public.

• In October, GJEP will take part in the UN Convention on Biological Diversity in Colombia to meet with Indigenous organizations and NGOs from around the world to stop the commercial release of GE trees.
