MLI's Canine Ambassador, Yankee, was back on Capitol Hill this week! Mine Detection Dog Yankee's presence on the Hill helps to highlight the United States as the world's single largest financial supporter of efforts to clear explosive remnants of war and urges congressmen to take action against landmines in Yemen and around the world.
When not busy visiting Members of Congress and walking the power hallways of Washington DC, Yankee helps MLI spread awareness of the landmine problem by traveling throughout the U.S. and engaging youth, teachers, and other caring global citizens in this important humanitarian issue to make a better and safer world for all people and animals.
