The world beneath our feet is a precious, wondrous place. Cavers, of course, have always known this. They are attracted to the challenges: the heights they must climb, the dark pits they descend, the tight and winding passages that may lead nowhere or may open up to beautiful rooms never before seen or imagined. No matter the outcome, cavers are curious and motivated by the possibility of what lies beyond the next turn. They feel challenged and inspired by the unknown. Scientists are a lot like cavers. They often donít know where their research will take them, yet they find excitement in the pursuit of knowledge and what they can learn along the way.

Both cavers and scientists care very much about conserving the caves of the world. They and we at MacGillivray Freeman Films hope Journey into Amazing Caves inspires you to want to learn more about this underground frontier and to do what you can to help preserve it.
