Title: U.S. Fish and Wildlife: White-Nose Syndrome in Bats
Url: http://www.fws.gov/WhiteNoseSyndrome/
Publisher: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
Description: This website provided by the US Fish and Wildlife Service is dedicated to White-Nose Syndrome (WNS). In February 2006 some 40 miles west of Albany, N.Y., a caver photographed hibernating bats with an unusual white substance on their muzzles. He noticed several dead bats. The following winter, bats behaving erratically, bats with white noses, and a few hundred dead bats in several caves came to the attention of New York Department of Environmental Conservation biologists, who documented White-Nose Syndrome in January 2007. More than a million hibernating bats have died since. Biologists with state and federal agencies and organizations across the country are still trying to find the answer to this deadly mystery. On the site visitors will find current news on WNS, photos, research and monitoring, audio and video, and information on the WNS national plan. In addition, you can monitor the situation by following them on Twitter and Facebook and by reading their blog.
