Title: White Nose Sydrome in Bats - A Conservation Challenge


One hour recording of a lecture and slide presentation about White-Nose syndrome in bats, by Peter Youngbaer Sponsored jointly by the USGS and the San Francisco Bay Chapter of the National Speleological Society, Mr. Youngbaer addressed the topic of White Nose Syndrome, a fungus associated with decimation of bat populations in the northeastern United States, but which is spreading south and west, reaching as far west as Missouri earlier this year. The lecture covered: what is killing our bats, what's being done about it, and what you can do to help USGS scientists and others address this critical issue.
