Sažetak
After organising International speleological expeditions in Tanzania, Iran and Lebanon in the past ten years, UIS (International Union of Speleology) team has come to Cyprus in March 2017. It's mission was to support EU project called "The Caves of Kyrenia Mountains project : Research, Conservation and Education". Trainers from Lebanon and Croatia taught Cypriots caving technics, cave topography and cave photography. The training concluded both of teoretical and practical parts. During the expedition the deepest and longest knowncave on Cyprus was explored. All together 11 caves were explored. This was the first time in history that all cavers from Cyprus made any caving education together. At the end of this part of education 17 of them got knowledge of introduction in basic caving. The second part of the training was held in October and November 2017. Experienced international trainers from Lebanon and Croatia had been teaching Cypriot cavers in theoretical and practical parts of caving technics, cave topography and cave photography. Ten people successfully finished the second part of the basic cave training in. Up until that time only about 160 caves were known on Cyprus. In April and May 2018 the third part of the training was held. It was wonderful to see Greek and Turkish Cypriots forming a united caving community, exploring caves and helping each other. Eleven Cypriot cavers are now well trained thanks to the UIS trainers from Croatia, Lebanon, France, and USA. With knowledge in technical speleology, rigging, SRT, mapping, photography, geology and speleogenesis. A year and a half of working and training with Cypriot cavers within this project has come to an end with the full satisfaction of all. Today there are about 220 known caves on Cyprus. The deepest one with the depth a little bit more than 200 meters (Pentadaktilos Cave - Sinkhole) and the longest one measures about 350 meters in length. This project was funded by European Union. Sponsors were: Cyprus center for European and International affairs, Near East University and University of Nicosia, American Embassy on Cyprus, European Speleological Federation (FSE) and Union Internationale de Speleologie (UIS). We have been together in many interesting and new caves there. Thanks to our friends for excellent hospitality on Cyprus.
