Host Michael Skinner goes caving, or spelunking as some like to call it. We'll explore marvelous caves in the Northwestern area of Georgia and learn more about the inhabitants there, such as the endangered grey bat, the threatened Tennessee salamander and other more common cave dwellers such as the pipistrel bat and millipedes.

Also, learn about the efforts of the Department of Natural Resources efforts to survey these underground areas for life. Sometimes humans fall victim to the often treacherous terrain of these beautiful caves. We'll explore some of the efforts and techniques used to rescue these spelunkers and review the safety precautions every caver should follow.
