Jaunary 2021

As international partners to UIS International Year of Caves and Karst (IYCK), the CaveMAB Network was invited to present a short message of support at the opening ceremony. We used this opportunity to invite others to join the network and our outreach campaign, #TogetherForCaves, while highlighting our BR members.

We hope you feel inspired to celebrate the IYCK and the venerable 50th Anniversary of the Man and the Biosphere Program by participating in #TogetherForCaves.

Our outreach subcommittee has developed a series of events and activities as well as downloadable promotional materials that can be found on our website 2021 section.

We encourage all BRs with caves to join us in these collaborative projects. In particular, we are creating a #TogetherForCaves video and want to include your cave and/or karst biosphere reserve! The deadline for submissions is March 31, you can find all other guidelines here.

It’s about life. Explore, understand and protect.
