It's not just the greedy and unscrupulous pickers at fault here; it's the shops, the restaurants, the media - and the customers who consume the mushrooms. As usual, demand driven. There will be very little of anything at all left soon. Sick to the heart. I feel that the media doesn't do enough to promote the ethics of foraging; yes there is the occasional general article about it , but usually only a sentence or two along the lines of 'don't pick too much'. As usual I don't know what the answer is, but everyone can play their part in this one.
This photo is of my fungus foray when I went on one led by John Wright, back in 2007. There is a world of beauty and fascination out there, would be wonderful if folks would just consider that others would like to share it too.
