In my heart, years, but IRL like 3 months. Best 3 months of my life though!

What’s the best part of your job?

I have to write a column for Salient every week, and I have heard that it is a disgusting travesty!

So what do you actually do?

10 birds fitted with miniature backpacks carrying pollution sensors and GPS trackers are flying around London, tweeting their data to measure air pollution. Often discriminated against and labelled ‘sky rats’, these pigeons are helping to fight smog and deserve a medal.
