Bats in Crisis Series: White-nose syndrome (WNS) is a disease caused by a fungus 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. Visit the bats website to learn more about bats in national parks.
It's All About Bats!: National Park Service wildlife veterinarian Michelle Verant shares expertise on bats and White Nose Syndrome, and engages with BioBlitz participants at the NPS Centennial celebration on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., May 2016.
