Cave Animal of the Year 2024

The initiative “GREECE – Cave Animal of the Year” is a contribution to the effort to inform and raise public awareness about the amazing creatures of our country’s underground environment. Greece started this effort in 2021 -the International Year of Caves and Karst- to join the international awareness efforts initiated by Germany and expanded with the participation of other countries.
