TCC Mission

On October 13, 1994, several cavers gathered in New Braunfels, Texas to create the Texas Cave Conservancy. The Mission Statement of this non-member, non-profit, 501 (c) (3) Texas corporation is listed below.

"The Texas Cave Conservancy is dedicated to the protection of caves, cave life, and aquifers as related to caves. We work through public education, scientific research and cave management by assisting land developers, municipalities, conservation groups, other non-profit organizations and private land- owners in the protection and management of caves."

Currently, we are involved in cave management activities in over sixty-five cave preserves in the Austin, Texas area. Over two hundred caves are under management.

There are over one thousand known caves in the urban areas throughout Texas. Some of the best caves have been destroyed. As development continues, the goal of the Texas Cave Conservancy is to save as many caves as possible through the establishment of parks and preserves. Much of our income is from the design, construction, and the management of cave preserves. As a non-profit organization, our consultation is provided at no cost to the cave owner.
