Custodians

The custody of the cave belongs to a consortium made up by representatives of the Group for Underwater and Spelological Exploration and the Local Council of Mangalia.

Conservation measures

  • trips into the cave are limited at two hours, twice a month while no more than 3 people can enter at the same time
  • clean footwear and coveralls have to be worn to avoid contamination of the cave
  • two gates and an airtight lid are protecting the cave from unauthorized access and influences from the outside (gas exchange, temperature fluctuations and species immigration)
