At the recent biennial conference of EuroMAB (regional network of European and North American Biosphere Reserves within the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere World Network), the CaveMAB initiative was successfully promoted and gained new partners from Slovakia and Poland. CaveMAB is a thematic network that brings together biosphere reserves that manage and protect cave and/or karst resources both natural and cultural and are dedicated to connecting people to nature for improved sustainability. The members in attendance decided on continuing outreach to BRs across the globe and focus items for future work during the UNESCO Karst 2020 conference that will take place at the Mammoth Cave Area Biosphere Reserve USA, May 18-22, 2020.
