SKP provides drinking water for Soqotri!

We just heard that the people from two villages near the NE coast are thrilled! They were able to bring some water from an underground waterfall we discovered in January directly to their villages through piping. This and the protection of Hoq cave are our first practical achievements.
A poster session: "Explorative karstological research on the island Soqotra (Yemen)" was held at the International Karst Record III: Climate Changes Symposium at the CNRS in Montpellier, France. Firm international contacts were made for future cooperation.
All team members come together to collect all digital photographs, review the topographical cave maps and start preparing SKP4 and 5!
