Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape."

"There are 17,000 known caves in the southeastern United States. Caves and karst environments are home to over a 1,000 cave dwelling species, and 95% of them are listed as threatened or endangered. Caves house many historic and cultural resources from civil war signatures to Native American cave writings. These special environments must be protected and remain as accessible as possible for recreational cavers and nature lovers alike.
SCCi currently protects 171 caves on 31 preserves in 6 states. Founded in 1991, SCCi is the world’s largest land conservancy dedicated solely to cave conservation. The caves we protect represent some of the Southeast’s most significant wild caves. We protect the habitat endangered animals, preserve historic artifacts, and provide some of the best recreational caving anywhere."

"t's pretty obscure, little more than the mouth of a bear den, but it leads into a fascinating underworld and ties into the world's longest cave that is protected by Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky.

And thanks to the Southeastern Cave Conservancy, Inc., the Daleo Entrance to Mammoth Cave that is just about a mile east of the national park is being protected by the nonprofit organization.

The land surrounding the entrance, now named the Elroy and Marilyn Daleo Cave Preserve, protects 88 acres of classic karst on the Mammoth Cave Plateau. It recently was purchased by the cave conservancy."
