Vision & Mission

The Fungi Foundation works for the Fungi, their habitats and the people who depend on them.


We envision a healthy planet in which Fungi are recognized as the interconnectors of nature.



The Fungi Foundation is a global organization that explores Fungi to increase knowledge of their diversity, promote innovative solutions to contingent problems, educate about their existence and applications, as well as recommending public policy for their conservation.

I have followed the work of the Fungi Foundation in Chile since its conception. Not only have they helped change Chilean law to recognize fungi as essential organisms in evaluating ecosystems before development, but their influence has spread worldwide.
