Fungal Network of New Zealand (FUNNZ)

Auckland - New Zealand

The Fungal Network of New Zealand (FUNNZ) is an independent non-profit incorporated mycological society open to anybody. FUNNZ organises an annual national fungal foray.

The main objects of the Society are:

To share knowledge about, and to publicise the fungi of New Zealand and their roles in all ecosystems
To stimulate research on fungi
To educate about fungi at primary to tertiary levels
To provide a cohesive group of amateur and professional people who share common interests in fungi
To assist in cataloguing New Zealand's fungi and to promote their conservation
To organise at minimum an annual national fungal foray
To attract funding for mycological research
To promote such other activities that may advance the aims of this Society
