Hero Rats clear Landmines

Something a bit different in this weeks blog post. Mike Browne is currently in Cambodia teaching his students how to improve their photography skills. Whilst out there Mike visited the Cambodian mine fields, which to this day are still incredibly dangerous. Up until recently these mine fields were cleared by skilled mine hunters using instruments as simple as sticks, many of whom were killed in the process. Recently it was discovered that rats, with their ultra sensitive noses, could be trained to hunt mines out, and because they are so light they don’t set them off! We hope you enjoy the video and for those who may wonder Mike did survive!
