SPIRE supports APOPO through our adoption of Baraka, our Pet Hero landmine detection rat and Gizmo, our Pet Hero landmine detection dog.

Meet Sokleang

Sokleang lives with her family in Cambodia in an area own for heavy landmines. 50% of civilians killed by landmines are children. Mine detection rats like our Baraka, can safely go into these areas and help detect where mines are located. These mines are then removed.

Landmines slow the economic recovery of war-torn areas. They make access very difficult and extremely dangerous. as well as making farming and livestock grazing next to impossible.
