The Ternopol-Podilskyi Caving Club has recently been associated with the NRO when four NSS/NRO organizations joined them (UAYCEF, NNJG, MET & CCG) in August 2000. Besides sheer love for caving, the membership was motivated by the need for funds and support of a worsening economy that lends little toward not
only conservation of caves, but also simply the funds for individuals to afford recreational trips. Through our joint efforts, we hope to continue to preserve amazing caving areas of the Ukraine for future generations.
*** The caver pictured in the homepage photo is Sergey Eperfanov who is the President of the Ternopil Speleological Club in Western Ukraine. In adition the photo was taken in Ozernaya, one of the "Giant Gypsums" located in Ukraine, and the ninth longest cave in the world.
More information and an application
to join can be found on UAYCEF's website.
