British Cave Research Association is a UK registered charity, and a
constituent body of the British
Caving Association, undertaking charitable activities on behalf of BCA.
BCRA's object is to promote the study of caves and associated
phenomena. It attains this object by supporting cave & karst research; by
encouraging original exploration (both in the UK and on expeditions overseas);
by collecting and publishing speleological information; maintaining a library;
and organising educational and scientific conferences and meetings.
