The Southeastern Cave Conservancy, Inc. (SCCi) is non-profit organization founded in 1991 and dedicated to cave conservation, education, and recreation. The SCCi currently protects 171 caves on 30 preserves in 6 states. SCCi owns 23 of these cave preserves, representing more than $2 million in land assets.

SCCi’s 1000+ members support the mission of balancing cave conservation with recreational access. Basic membership is just $25 a year and helps us keep protecting these special places. Click Here to Join today!

We are interested in acquiring caves in the southeastern US that need protection for conservation or recreational access reasons. The SCCi is particularly interested in caves that are threatened with closure or destruction or those that provide a habitat for endangered species.
