Unfortunately, in the early days hikers were allowed to explore alone, and would burn anything as makeshift torches.  Plastic causes  dangerous chemicals and it isn’t only humans who suffer as a result.  It appears that many bays suffocated, to the extent that bat populations in this and 9 caves fell by about 90%. Today la bocage only has around 600,000 bats living there.
