Abstract:

A land mine is an indiscriminate killer-it doesn't care how young or old its victims are, or how many years have passed since the end of the conflict for which it was intended. Likewise, land mines have been put to use prolifically and ubiquitously by armies the world over, and experts fear it will take 500 years before the last one on the planet is either defused or detonated. But a surprising and highly innovative mine-detection method is gaining ground in Africa-one that utilizes the indigenous Giant Pouched Rat as its principal technology. Host Alvin Hall witnesses these remarkable rodents in action and advises APOPO, the social enterprise behind the idea, on ways to secure its financial future.
