To celebrate the International Year of Caves and Karst we have joined forces with biologist Slavko Polak, Senior Curator at Notranjska Museum in Postojna, Slovenia, and an expert in research of subterranean fauna, in preparation of an educational publication Secret Life in Karst Caves. 

The book, published in Slovene and English language, is suitable for secondary education, as well as for anyone who would like to learn more about the richness of life underground. Examples are based on typical representatives of cave animals in Slovenian Karst, however the variety of presented habitats give the reader an overall idea of the types of animals that can be found living in caves around the globe. 

Alongside the text, which is perfectly detailed to introduce the reader to the underground world, the book is enriched by incredible photographs, showing the researched animals in great detail. 

The mysterious underground world offers so many opportunities for expanding our knowledge and we hope that this publication will excite many future cave biologists, speleologists and cave visitors in general.
