AOD Media Watch is a collective of volunteer rogue clinicians, researchers, journalists who want to see better reporting of Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD)-related issues in the media. We aim to support journalists to report on science and evidence rather than on myths, unsupported opinions and moral panic. We seek to foster a spirit of collaboration with the media, to provide constructive feedback, and to be a resource used by journalists.

MYCOmmunity is a not-for-profit community organisation that aims to increase public awareness about fungi and the vital role they play in the ecosystem, for health and environmental sustainability.
Mycology is one of the fields that is most driven by citizen scientists. Not only do they contribute to taxonomic and ecological research, but they play a vital role in collecting data for conservation of threatened fungi. They also drive many innovations in applied mycology. We want to make scientific skills, training and equipment accessible to citizen mycologists.
We also run Mycelium Lab which is a community laboratory in Victoria. It is focussed on citizen science, sustainability and conservation. We have scientific equipment for a variety of purposes including microbiology, mushroom cultivation, plant tissue culture, microscopy, DNA extraction and amplification and more.
