RescueRATs! Trained giant pouched rats to complement S&R efforts.
APOPO is a non-profit with a solid track record of training rats to solve humanitarian challenges. Our rats are actively clearing minefields & detecting tuberculosis patients. With their keen sense of smell, trainability, small size, and agility, they may also uniquely aid search and rescue efforts. Provisional RescueRAT training will be presented, with promising early results.
