S6 Ep5: From Soil to Sky: Exploring Funga's Innovative Approach to Forest Regeneration

Discover the future of ecosystem regeneration and biodiversity work as Nick sits down with Colin Averill, CEO and Founder of Funga, to discuss their groundbreaking approach to reforestation. 

By harnessing and unlocking fungal biodiversity insights, Colin's team introduces diverse fungal and bacterial communities to the reforestation process, helping to revitalize degraded soil microbiomes by establishing extensive mycelium networks that fuel plant growth. With a background in forest carbon cycle science, Colin's team is responsible for designing projects spanning thousands of acres that utilize rigorous scientific precision to achieve ecological restoration. 

Join Nick as he and Colin explore Funga's journey to amplify forest health, build a massive database of fungal biodiversity, and combat climate change through nature-inspired biotechnology.
