Welcome to the Cave Conservancy of the Virginias
Our mission statement is to promote and facilitate the conservation, management, knowledge, and acquisition of cave and karst resources in Virginia and West Virginia.
We are a nonprofit organization, established in 1980 for the purpose of protecting and managing caves and karst resources in Virginia and West Virginia and are based in Richmond, Virginia, USA. Our membership is made up of people from all walks of life that recognize the importance of karst resources to water quality and the need to protect the fragile environment of caves so that the many unique species that can survive no where else may be preserved for study and enjoyment by future generations.
CCV is proud to have contributed independently and in conjunction with various other nonprofit organizations on many educational, research, and environmental protection projects over the years.
