The Southeastern Cave Conservancy, Inc. (SCCi) is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to cave conservation, education, and recreation. A group of southeastern cavers formed the SCCi in 1991 and the organization currently has over 1,000 members. Membership is open to anyone interested in caves and cave conservation. The SCCi currently owns or manages 30 cave preserves on 16,475 acres in six states. We own 23 of these cave preserves, representing more than $2 million in land assets.
We are interested in caves anywhere in the southeastern US that need protection or management for conservation or access reasons. The SCCi is particularly interested in caves that are threatened with closure or destruction or those which provide a habitat for endangered species such as the gray bat, Tennessee cave salamander, or Hart’s Tongue Fern. Our mission is to preserve caves and cave environments and to manage them responsibly.
