NACD announces Quintana Roo Speleological Survey (QRSS)

The National Association of Cave Divers has announced that the QRSS Convention 2003 will be held in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo Mexico on the evenings of September 5-6, 2003.

This will be the second underwater caving convention. It is intended to provide the community and local cavers with two evenings of informative talks on the status and progress of various dry and wet cave investigations in Quintana Roo.

If you were able to attend the very first convention in 2002, this year’s convention should see many improvements. New and very exciting presentations are included this year.

The event is free to the public and reinforces NACD’s commitment to education and constructive dialogue while at the same time providing an enjoyable and a cordial atmosphere for all the attendees and speakers. Nearly 300 people attended last years’ convention.

The Quintana Roo Speleological Survey (QRSS) supports the safe exploration, survey and cartography of the underwater caves and cenotes of Quintana Roo, Mexico. Created in 1990, the QRSS maintains an extensive archive of cave survey data for over 91 underwater caves and cave systems.

NACD’s primary goal with this survey is to encourage conservation and awareness of the underwater caves and cenotes of Quintana Roo through collaboration and knowledge.
