White-nose Syndrome has been confirmed in Northeast and Southwest Ohio and is threatening other cave-hibernating bat populations in the state.
The National Park Service has produced an excellent series of three videos describing White-nose syndrome (WNS), a disease caused by a fungus, Geomyces destructans, that is threatening cave-hibernating bat populations in our national parks.
Watch the videos below to learn more about white-nose syndrome and the efforts different parks, such as Mammoth Cave National Park and Lava Beds National Monument, are making to identify and respond to this deadly disease.
With your help, we hope to minimize the risk of the spread of white-nose syndrome to protect these wonderful creatures for future generations to enjoy.
