Fungi for Land

Australian land managers are only just beginning to discover the important roles that fungi play in healthy ecosystems.  Australian fungi are different from those in other countries in the same way that our plants, animals and other species differ.  Despite this, Australia lacks a practical guide for land managers for conservation and restoration focused management.

Restoration guides from other countries are therefore at best less applicable and at worst, may suggest the incorporation of fungi from other regions and other countries, which is likely to be detrimental to our Australian landscapes and species.

Fungi4land are developing a practical guide that will focus on integrating fungi into current land management tool kits. 

We know that healthy bushlands are resilient bushlands, due to the myriad of interactions between our animals, fungi, plants and microbes.

By bringing together a large team of international and Australian experts on land management, conservation and fungal ecology – we are creating Australia’s first guide on practical land management that will harness the mysterious mycological kingdom. Thanks to the generosity of a key supporter, we're delighted to advise that all donations will be matched up to a total value of $30,000; we would be so grateful for your support!
