Explore Zika Zine – Then Make Your Own Zika Zine Comic!
The Zika Zine is an outreach effort of the GLOBE Zika Education and Prevention Project, an initiative of the GLOBE Implementation Office in partnership with the U.S. Department of State.
The fictional mosquitoes in the Zika Zine do the same sorts of things as real Aedes mosquitoes, which carry the Zika virus. Read the Zine to learn how Aedes mosquitoes live, and you’ll discover how to reduce the number of places where mosquitoes can survive. You’ll also find out how citizen scientists are helping NASA by documenting mosquito habitats with GLOBE Observer.
This project aims to limit the spread of Zika virus and other vector-borne diseases by eliminating mosquito breeding sites at the larval stage in Zika-affected regions. Zika Zine is available to download in ten different languages.
