TEMPORARY CAVE CLOSURES! to help prevent the spread of White Nose Syndrome
This malady of unknown origin is destroying entire bat colonies in the eastern U.S. It is non-lethal to humans. However, human transfer of the syndrome is considered a possibility. We appreciate your help in preventing the spread of this disease to caves on Buffalo National River.
"A low level of the fungus that causes white-nose syndrome in bats has been detected in two north Arkansas caves" according to a press release from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. The full press release may be found on the AGFC website.
New "Bats in Crisis" video is now available. Links to videos and additional information are in the press release.
