An email seems to be doing the rounds asking for support for an EU written declaration "on the protection of caves as a cultural, natural and environmental heritage". I'm not sure if BCA has a view on this - I see nothing on here.

Here's the written declaration...

www.europarl.europa.eu/sidesSearch/sear ... artValue=0

and a web site with a presentation...

www.cavedeclaration.eu

It strikes me as a rather woolly and perhaps conceived by someone with not much of a caving background. "(c) incentives for conservation of caves, ensuring that they will be studied by specialists
like speleologists, geo(morpho)logists, archaeologists, biologists, climatologists, etc.;" could mean that they want to stop recreational cavers trashing caves.

Does anyone know if there has been any discussion I've missed within the UK caving community?
