Disappearing Bats

“White nose” disease is mysteriously spreading throughout the northeast killing thousands. Scientists seem baffled by the spread of this disease first discovered two winters ago. Tell tale signs are white smudges on wings and noses of hibernating bats. Although it poses no health risk to humans the ramifications can still be great. Bats consume millions of harmful pests each night and threats to our crops and health get larger without this misunderstood predator.

No solutions are yet apparent for ‘white nose’ but scientist and enviormentalist alike are gravely concerned.
