Conservation Overview

Caves and karst systems touch our lives quietly and subtly, as well as dramaticly and obviously. Out-of-sight, out-of-mind holes in the ground contain important resources of value that are worthy of ongoing attention!

Caves Need Protection

Cave walls, floors, ceilings and habitats are easily damaged. Caves hold fragile, irreplaceable natural and cultural features, including vital groundwater resources. We need to stop cave damage caused by vandals and uniformed visitors.
