Minimal Impact Caving Guidelines

The BCA has published Minimal Impact Caving Guidelines, these detail the measures that cavers should take to reduce our impact on caves when on purely recreational trips and when exploring new ground (including digs)..

Cave Conservation Code

The Cave Conservation Code provide an easily remembered set of principles that when followed will help us preserve the underground world.

  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.

Two posters for display are available.
