Research Intern

Researcher
Posted: 1 week, 4 days ago
Salary: Unpaid Type: Research Location: Working remotely (preferable time zones are UTC−05:00 through UTC+01:00 Hours: In consultation (roughly 10 hours a week) Duration: Minimum of 3 month, no maximum Start-date: As soon as possible, preferably mid-October. Note: Healthier Hens is currently a remote team working in timezones between PST, BST, EAT, CET and CEET. About us We started Healthier Hens because we believe that given the scale of suffering of egg-laying hens, there is still a lot of room for improving their welfare. Unfortunately, egg-laying hen diets today often do not contain nutrient levels optimal for the birds’ health and well-being, especially, as we found, in Kenya - our country of pilot operations. Hens experience an increase in bone related health issues because feeds are formulated to maximize egg-laying productivity. Keel bone fractures (KBFs) are a major cause of acute and chronic pain for egg-laying hens across all housing systems and can affect >90% of birds on commercial farms. These fractures often take up to 6 to 8 weeks or even longer to heal. Since they remain untreated, hens can fall into depression-like mental states, and can experience other welfare issues such as bumblefoot or poor feather coverage. To solve this unnoticed and neglected issue of poor hen welfare from osteoporosis and bone fractures, we are looking for a way to ensure that hens kept commercially, cage-free are given optimal levels of calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D3 - nutrients key for bone development and health. Our current goals are to strengthen our research to test the direct link between feed fortification and hen welfare, and promote farmers' and government awareness on KBFs and associated hen welfare outcomes. To achieve this, we will conduct a baseline study on KBF prevalence in Kenya, and measure the direct efficacy of dietary interventions on KBFs via pilot trials. We intend to deploy our feed fortification intervention through two main phases: producer buy-in and government buy-in. Our research efforts (pilots and trials) will aid both phases as a means to show that hen welfare can in fact be improved via dietary interventions. Our first phase will see us providing such real, geographically-relevant data to farmers and millers, so we may collaborate to improve feed. Once enough farmers and millers switch to fortified feeds, we can make a case to the government and other animal NGOs to help us scale our efforts via policy changes and feed fortification asks. The role Adding to our ongoing literature review, exploring promising novel avenues. Researching industrial stakeholders, regulatory information, searching for contacts Assisting with report-writing and data presentatio Attending meetings (stakeholder and internal) to take notes, add input, actively collaborate with cofounders. How will your work have an impact? Your work will improve the quality of Healthier Hens’ research efforts, increase the feasibility of Healthier Hens pilot program and early field work Healthier Hens have the potential to achieve unprecedented impact via a cost-effective intervention focused on feed fortification and you are able to make that possible As a young and growing organisation, at Healthier Hens you will have the opportunity to shape how we work and our agenda. We welcome innovative and strategic thinking about our goals and plans; your opportunity for impact will extend beyond the direct work that you will do.

We are seeking a designer to work with our developer to launch a compelling website

Designer
Posted: 2 weeks, 7 days ago
Piece of Heaven vegan project https://www.pohpsanctuary.com/ is simultaneously engaged in running a farm animal sanctuary, educating individuals about the benefits of a meat free diet, developing learning materials for would be influencers, and addressing the inescapable fact that many existing food production sources devastate the planet and its resources. The latter is achieved through a separate entity Plant Based Future by direct engagement with corporate bodies to persuade them to educate staffs in the time critical need to make major changes in dietary choices, and securing commitment via the use of an (as yet undeveloped) app. We are working to launch a website for Plant Based Future to inspire potential users of the possibilities that could be achieved from the success of this programme, and to reassure of our standing as a professional organisation. We are lucky that via Vegan Hacktivist we have a volunteer developer to help us, we are now seeking a designer to make the difference in creating the inspiring website we envisage.

Bother a Bank

Social
Posted: 3 weeks, 6 days ago
The website Banks for Animals has the option to send a message to a bank via social media and/or email, asking it to adopt strong animal welfare policies. We are updating the site and need to check if all the links to these social media accounts, and all the emails, of the banks, are still working (last checked a year ago). So, we are looking for people who could test these all (and in the process also send messages to the banks). So ideally you would have Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts (or make one for this purpose). There are 70 banks to be checked. You can do them all, or just a few, as you wish :) Checking one bank should take about 15 minutes.
