Fungal ‘weeds’ have been introduced or hitch-hiked into Australia and many are now well established, spreading from parks and gardens into bushlands with significant potential to threaten biodiversity.

The most damaging ‘weed’ species are difficult, if not impossible, to eradicate but we can take action to stop their spread.
The message is: Arrive clean. Leave clean!
