, : Management of tourism impact within caves in Thailand's national parks. Tigerpaper 23(4): 14-17

An outline for the environmental management of caves in Thailand is provided. Four classifications of caves, based on the extent of degradation through tourism, are identified. High priority protection caves possess a high level of biodiversity or rare species and require immediate attention to prevent further damage and to save them as living natural history museums for future research. Wild caves are defined by their remote location and the threat to damage by tourists is low.
