Sophie Green┬áis the current Coordinator of Fungimap, a national non-profit citizen science fungi organisation dedicated to the mapping and conservation of Australia’s macro-fungi. Based on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia, Sophie developed an interest in fungi through regenerating a heavily degraded 50 acre property together with her young family, and seeing the magical re-emergence of many different mycorrhizal fungi species helping restore the landscape. This was just the start of realising how mind-blowingly amazing fungi are! Sophie is an active member of the Adelaide Fungal Studies Group and a keen citizen scientist who loves recording the diverse and beautiful fungi found in local national parks. With a background in community development and environmental activism, Sophie’s work with Fungimap involves encouraging citizen scientists to record their fungi sightings on iNaturalist, and working on other projects in the areas of fungal education, research, and conservation.
