a new video on 2016 winner "The Sex Life of the Screwworm Fly"

Researchers at the world's only facility dedicated to screwworm eradication, the Comisión para la Erradicación del Gusano (COPEG) in Panama, show how the Sterile Insect Technique works. The Screwworm Barrier Maintenance Program located at COPEG is managed by both the United States and Panamanian governments and seeks to reduce the damage caused by New World screwworms, which attack livestock and other warm-blooded mammals.
It takes vision and persistence to solve our world’s most complex problems.
