APOPO was created in response to the growing recognition that landmines kill and maim people while also impeding development in post-conflict countries. Methods for ridding affected countries of landmines were slow, so a small team in Belgium formed APOPO to design a fast, simple, and cost-effective mine clearing system that could be sustained within low-income countries’ national mine action programs. APOPO devised a novel method based on trained rats. APOPO is now a global leader in smell detection animals, including trained rats (HeroRATs) and the world’s first free-running, long-range Mine Detection Dogs (HeroDOGs). APOPO, as a research organization, is constantly on the cutting edge of inventing new humanitarian and environmental scent detecting applications. Our primary operational activity are in mine action.
