About Carolina
Meet Carolina
Carolina is a female tuberculosis detection rat based in Dar es Salaam, a mega-city in Tanzania. Carolina can search 100 sputum samples in 20 minutes, much faster than a lab technician. Adopt Carolina and help us fight TB.

All of our HeroRATs have a highly developed sense of smell and their light weight makes them ideal detectors of landmines and tuberculosis. Thanks to the generous adoption support of people like you, we can continue to carry out our important work and protect the lives of men, women, and children, as well as animals and wildlife.
