White-nose syndrome (WNS) was discovered in New York in the winter of 2006, and it has spread to more than half of the U.S. and killed millions of hibernating bats since then. The National Park Service has acted to support bat conservation and help slow the spread of the fungus that causes the disease. Since 2013, the Service has funded hundreds of projects related to WNS in parks across the US. Click on the markers on the map to find out more about the projects.
