SCCi adopts new, streamlined Cave Visitation Policy

Postby ron_miller » Mar 1, 2010 10:59 pm

February 27, 2010 - The Board of Directors of the Southeastern Cave Conservancy, Inc. (SCCi) today approved a revised Cave Visitation Policy for all SCCi caves, effective immediately. The Board adopted this policy in order to help reduce the potential inadvertent introduction of foreign substances, including the fungus associated with White Nose Syndrome (WNS), that could harm bats and other forms of cave life.

The revised Cave Visitation Policy reflects the SCCi Board's continuing efforts to balance the management and protection aspects of cave conservation in accordance with the SCCi mission and purpose. Our members and partners have committed enormous amounts of money and time to protect these caves and their fragile ecosystems, and the Board greatly appreciates their continuing support. If you have any questions regarding the revised policy, please contact Chair Brian Krebs, Stewardship Chair Bill Overton, or the appropriate SCCi Property Manager or Management Team.

The new policy is available at our website, http://www.scci.org, and may be viewed and downloaded directly using this link - http://scci.org/Preserves/SCCi_WNS_Policy.pdf
