"It is the duty of every Society member to: 

Take personal responsibility for spreading a consciousness of the cave

conservation problem to each potential user of caves. Without this, the

beauty and value of our caves will not long remain with us."

NSS News, March 2002, "Participate in NSS Conservation Policy Review", NSS
