A Solution to Pollution - Mycoremediation in the Ecuadorian Amazon - Nicola Peel
A film by Nicola Peel, about how mushrooms are helping to clean up oil spills in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

Mycoremediation is an incredible technique using fungi to break down oil and other contaminants. This short film shows how the Amazon Mycorenewal Project http://www.amazonmycorenewal.org initiated the first ever trials using myco-remediation in highly polluted areas of the Ecuadorian rainforest.
