Cave Conservation grants - Eurospeleo Protection Label


Active member
Hello folks,

Please feel free to forward to relevant parties. I can think of several projects for which this would be relevant.

The FSE is asking for applications for the Eurospeleo Protection Label for conservation projects, which recognizes good conservation practice and, importantly also offers financial support. In the past, the label has paid for projects that include cave cleanups in Italy and educational boards in Croatia.

There's more information here:


And some examples of previous winners of funding:


If anybody is interested, please don't hesitate to let me know - we can of course help with the application/bureaurocracy. The award is up to 800EUR plus some kit.
