The White-Nose Syndrome is a disease affecting hibernating bats in North America, and was first documented in the winter of 2006-2007. About 5.5 million bats have died sine the disease emerged. I had the wonderful opportunity to learn about in school, and then the even better opportunity to forget about it too. Ha! 🙂
Thankfully, the National Park Service has created three videos speaking on what the disease is, where the origins of the disease came from, and what we are doing to help (plus what you could do too help).
