Newly discovered cave in BC

In March 2018, while conducting a caribou census in Wells Gray Provincial Park, a helicopter crew from the province’s Ministry of Environment and Climate Change discovered an unusual feature in the area. The amazing new discovery starts a dramatic new chapter for Canadian cave exploration.

Geologist Catherine Hickson visited the cave back in September. “It’s about the size of a soccer field.

It is truly amazing.”
