Therefore, it is important to be able to preserve the karst environment, either natural or cultural, for the benefit to the next generation. In order to carry out an appropriate karst environment management, especially in South Kalimantan, coordination and collaboration should be established between the Centre for Archaeology, Banjarmasin, the Local office for Culture and Tourism, the Conservation Centre for Natural Resources, the Lambung Mangkurat University, the non government organization on culture and the South Kalimantan community and produce a policy as a legal instruction to protect and preserve the South Kalimantan natural resources.
