Check Out GLOBE Zika Education and Prevention Project Comic-style Book “Zika Zine”

Cover of "Zika Zine"

The GLOBE Zika Education and Prevention project is happy to present, “Zika Zine.” Developed by the UCAR Center for Science Education, Zika Zine is a comic-style book that follows the story of three fictional mosquitos through their developmental life cycles in order to teach readers about the Aedes aegypti mosquito and the Zika virus.

The Zika Zine story shows students collecting mosquito larvae, using the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper (GO MHM) tool, to correctly identify mosquito species and to safely eliminate mosquito breeding sites. Zika Zine is a great resource for teachers, public health officials, citizen scientists, and community members; and to use at mosquito trainings.

Currently, Zika Zine is available online in English and Spanish (and will be available in Dutch, Filipino, French, Hindi, Nepali, Portuguese, Thai, and Vietnamese).
