The identification and classification of mushroom and fungi species.
*Picture from our US Mycologist, Kennan, field work in Africa.
Many species remain undescribed worldwide, specially in regions with high biodiversity (tropics) and high endemicity (islands).
“Parataxonomists benefit from steady employment, and in turn serve as a voice for conservation in their communities”
Identify new species of mushrooms in one of the most biodiversity countries in the world.
A new generation of Malagasy mycologists will identify species and benefit from documenting and harvesting. Find mushrooms that are already acclimated to growing in their climate.
When new mushroom species are identified, we can apply with the government to protect and preserve land.
While we prepare for taxonomy work we would also apply for grants to aid the work while contributing to science and knowledge of Madagascar.
As mycologists identify rare new mushroom species, we can then share the excitement with tourists as we offer educational ecotours that will benefit the local community and forests.
We are currently fundraising in order to better connect with donors and partners. If you want to help us move into the next phase of our mushroom cultivation and other projects please download our pitch deck and follow up with us. We are happy to consider meetings in order to present the pitch deck in more detail.
