Every HeroRAT is weighed before they begin training in the field where they detect landmines at the APOPO Headquarters, Morogoro, Tanzania.
It was an unusual assignment – following some very special African Pouched Rats who are trained to sniff out both landmines and to diagnose tuberculosis. I traveled with the Telegraph’s Guy Kelly to Dar es Salaam to see and meet the TB rats and then onto the APOPO headquarters in Morogoro Tanzania. Morogoro is where the rats are trained and then flown worldwide to do their jobs sniffing out mines and disease.
