Dear caving friends,

The European Speleological Federation (FSE) and its European Cave Protection Commission (ECPC) is very pleased to announce the launching of the 2012-2013 Call for the EuroSpeleo Protection Label. Please find enclosed the application form (deadline for applications 30 April 2013). You can also find the application form soon on the FSE website.
The aim of the EuroSpeleo Protection Label is to support active cave protection in the speleo clubs, committees, national commissions, etc, all over Europe and to share this knowledge throughout Europe.
We, as cavers having the underground world as a common passion, should be those that are concerned to preserve and protect the caves and karst discovered during explorations.
For this reason many cavers and speleological structures are identifying specific solutions which can then be shared with the whole European speleological community, in order to adapt these cave protection solutions for application in other European countries.
The FSE / ECPC would like to recognize quality projects which can help to find better solutions for cave protection among the speleological community by awarding them the EuroSpeleo Protection Label. This award should also involve financial support to allow continuation of the important work that has been carried out by the awarded clubs, committees and commissions, because we all need to preserve the speleological heritage for the next generations.
Given the good applications submitted last year, FSE decided for this year to award the best 2 submitted projects as follows:
The winner of the first prize will be granted with EuroSpeleo Protection Label and 500 Euro + 500m Beal rope or 550 Euro of AV gear or a Scurion lamp (*) and 2nd place : 500m Beal rope or 550 Euro of AV gear or a Scurion lamp (*)
(*) each winner will choose its 1st choice and 2nd choice (500m Beal rope or 550 Euro of AV gear or a Scurion lamp) and will receive the gear according to their choice and the availability of the gear FSE have.

Best speleological wishes for the new year!

FSE-ECPC Secretary
