Hi and welcome to the forum. Looks like the numbers you posted are a little bit out of date. AL is up to 4721 now. TN had (at last count) over 10K.

Not sure where the number for GA comes from, as they only have 677.

Of course these numbers are constantly being updated. With the advent of LIDAR mapping, cave discoveries will likely increase dramatically in the next few years.
