Their team will present on our research in Ecuador exploring the use of fungi in mycoremediating oil contamination. Learn about our educational and sustainability programs, edible and medicinal mushroom cultivation, and the challenges and blessings we've encountered while working in this biodiverse region of the Ecuadorian Amazon.
Mia Rose is a student of mycology, including fungal ecology, mushroom cultivation and fungal bioremediation. While facilitating the permaculture course at Symbiosis in 2006, Mia met film-maker Nicola Peel, who was in the process of editing her film Blood of the Amazon. Nicola and Mia initiated the Amazon Mycorenewal Project (AMP) and compiled a team of scientists, educators, and environmental activists develop strategies for cleaning up oil contamination in the Amazon River basin.
