Fighting Landmines – The Hero Rat

This is one hot link tipp I just got from Line – who is currently attending the Skoll World Forum in Oxford:

Hero Rat

Rats have a very fine sense of smell and are can be trained for landmine detection. A great idea, and a fun website. Go check it out now! Adopt a rat!

P. S.: I would have loved to adopt one straight away but the page is ‘under repair’. They better fix it soon.
