White Nose Syndrome: Devastating Fungus Threatens North American Bats
Here's a short video about the disease that is currently threatening North American bats and why it is so important that we understand it so that we can combat it and hopefully find a cure. Please note that the video was apparently made some time ago (the disease was discovered in 2006), so while it is stated in the video that 2 million bats have died from this, the death toll as of the beginning of this year was estimated to be 6.7 million! :(
