Cave Conservation


To ensure that caving is as enjoyable and beautiful for future generations as it is for us, the BCA has a few guidelides for cave conservation:

  • 1 Cave with care and thought for the environment.
  • 2 Disturb nothing whether living or geological.
  • 3 Avoid touching formations.
  • 4 Keep to marked routes and never cross conservation tapes.
  • 5 Take nothing but photographs.
  • 6 Do not pollute the cave, leave nothing behind.
