Title of Major Work: Cricket Farm for Sustainable Protein

“Space and water are becoming increasingly limited as both global warming and the world population increase,” Angus said.

“Getting enough protein in your diet in a sustainable and environmentally-friendly fashion is becoming increasingly harder. The resources most of the world rely on, such as cattle and poultry require such large amounts of these decreasing resources to produce even a small amount of protein.

“That is why I decided to undertake a project in which I could develop a product to help combat this issue. The cricket farm for sustainable protein is a solution that I have created, which is designed to create a healthy and sustainable protein that is better for the environment than current meat and meat alternatives.”
