These types of government agency decisions explain why our country is in such a mess. This also shows how a minority group (the CBD)
flexes it's lawyer power over government agencies. Pitiful.

"Under the government plan, which still must be approved by the regional head of the Forest Service and could go into effect as early as June, cavers and others could apply for a permit to explore caves if they agree to decontamination and other measures designed to protect bats."

I don't have a problem with that.

It's a way to get cave locations without having to work with the Grottos.

"You're applying for which cave??? We don't have any information on that cave. Do you have a location and description? Thank you!!! Unfortunately, we can't give out a permit to a cave that hasn't been checked for a bat population."
Caves are rare and precious things. Cavers...even more so. Treat each accordingly.
