Society for the Protection of Underground Networks

Fungal networks support much of life on Earth. SPUN is a science-based initiative founded to map fungal networks and advocate for their protection. 

In collaboration with researchers and local communities, we aim to accelerate efforts to protect underground ecosystems largely absent from conservation and climate agendas.

Our Mission:

  • Map the fungal networks of planet Earth
  • Advocate for the protection of underground ecosystems
  • Drive innovation in underground climate science
