In recent years, Magawa, a rat that lives in Cambodia and helps remove landmines, has become an internet celebrity thanks to social media. The PDSA Gold Medal, which recognizes bravery and dedication to one’s duties, was just recently bestowed upon Magawa. This medal is the animal equivalent of the George Cross, and it is presented by the People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals, which is the leading veterinary charity in the United Kingdom.

Magawa is what’s known as an African giant pouched rat in terms of its breed. The humanitarian organization APOPO educated him in the art of landmine detection. He has the most successful track record of any of the charity’s landmine-detecting cats. The brave rat has found 39 landmines and 28 items of unexploded ordnance up until this point in time. In addition, the hardworking employee cleaned up and made safe for use more than 141,000 square meters (over 1.5 million square feet) of land for the neighborhood residents. The fact that even the tiniest animal is capable of altering the trajectory of the future can be conclusively demonstrated by his outstanding performance and remarkable accomplishments.

Speaking to Bored Panda, PDSA shared that Magawa’s miniature medal was designed and struck by court jewelers and medallists Cleave & Co, who also created the Duchess of Sussex’s, Meghan Markle’s, engagement ring. They are responsible for all of the PDSA Medals, according to the team.

“The work that HeroRAT Magawa does directly saves the lives of men, women, and children who are affected by these landmines and changes the course of their lives.” Every new finding he makes lessens the likelihood that residents of the area will be hurt or killed. The purpose of the PDSA Animal Awards program is to bring greater awareness to the plight of animals in our culture and to recognize the significant impact they have on our lives. The level of commitment, bravery, and skill displayed by Magawa is an exceptional example of this, and he deserves the highest possible recognition for it. It is with great pleasure that we bestow upon him the PDSA Gold Medal. PDSA said.
