Job Description

HOPE is on a mission to use science and kindness to make radically better and sustainable pet food with alternative proteins so that all living things can live in harmony with the needs of our planet.
Pet parents have become increasingly concerned with the meat and fish products in their pet’s food. There are numerous environmental, health and animal welfare issues associated with meat and fish and there is a growing number of pets with allergies in need of hypoallergenic proteins. The case for alternative proteins in pet food has never been stronger.
We know we should reduce meat and fish consumption for a variety of reasons but a complete shift to plant-based ingredients is simply not possible. Some of the nutrients our pets need are not found in plants. Our solution is to use a blend of insects, algae and yeast to provide the nutrients that cannot be easily found in plants. These ingredients offer double the protein, 9 times the omegas and all the vitamins and minerals our pets need to thrive. The best part, pets love their umami taste!
At HOPE, we are developing the future of pet food with our commitment to make the most nutritious and sustainable pet food with our patent-pending blend of alternative proteins from insects, algae and yeast

This internship has been an excellent opportunity to bridge the gap between my academic experience and the more technical conservation world. I've had a chance to apply the theory and skills which I learned in an academic setting to more practical questions.
