Cave Research and Expedition funding
bE APART OF MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE COMMUNITY !
WHEN YOU THINK OF CAVE EXPEDITION YOU ARE PROBABLY IMAGINING A GRANT FROM NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC AND PAID SCIENTISTS THAT RESEARCH UNDERGROUND. alTHOUGH THOSE DO EXIST IT IS MORE COMMON FOR CAVERS TO PAY FOR EXPEDITIONS OUT OF THEY'RE OWN POCKET... INCLUDING TRAVEL AND TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT.
sO WHY DO THEY DO IT? tO BE APART OF HISTORY... REACHING THE DEEPEST DARKEST PLACES OF THE EARTH AND DOCUMENTING ITS GEOLOGICAL FINDINGS. As a result.. amazing stories of exploration evolve from bravery to mapping some of the most secretive systems below surface.
Learn about the community
Cavers spend long hours underground mapping virgin passage and researching GEOLOGICAL FINDS.. LEARN HOW YOU CAN BE APART OF THE COMMUNITY AND RESEARCH.
Interview with a caver
Cavers aren't your average folks.. or maybe they are. I have pulled aside several INDIVIDUALS TO TELL THEY'RE STORY AND TALK ABOUT PERSONAL EXPERIENCES UNDERGROUND.
