Cave research has revealed a lot about earth’s climatic changes. Caves often contain elevated levels of Carbon Dioxide (CO2), hence their conservation is of utmost importance. The mineral deposits in old caves have been undergoing this process for centuries. Extremely rare and highly delicate deposits are disturbed by changes in light levels, humidity, and temperature or air flow. Excessive human footprint, garbage carried via rivers, discharge of industrial effluents etc. and worst of all uncontrolled stone quarrying have posed a major threat.
Our module works towards creating awareness in the community about the value of caves and threats they face.
