TOGETHER, WE CAN HELP BATS SURVIVE WHITE-NOSE SYNDROME.
White-nose Syndrome is a disease that devastates bat colonies when they tuck into their underground homes to escape winter. The disease is caused by a fungus that grows on bats’ skin while they hibernate, disrupting their long winter nap and causing them to starve to death before spring. Without your help, many more bats may perish this winter because of White-nose Syndrome.
Tricolored bats, northern long-eared bats, and little brown bats were once some of the most abundant bat species in the United States. Now, they are all but wiped out. White-nose Syndrome has killed over 90% of their populations in just 15 years. If we don’t take urgent action, they will almost certainly disappear within our lifetimes.
Bats are dying and urgently need your support. Will you help them survive the devastation of White-nose Syndrome? Let’s save the remaining 10% before it’s too late.
