“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead
Many people decorate their homes with bats during Halloween. But bats should be celebrated all year round. They are essential to the environment and promote biodiversity. Without bats, the insect population would explode, leading to human illnesses and crop failure.
A geeky website may not be the place you would go to learn about bats, but I want to provide you with a little information about white-nose syndrome.
White-nose syndrome is a disease that is quickly spreading throughout North America. It has killed millions of bats. At this time, there is no known cure.
White-nose syndrome is caused by a fungus that attaches itself to bats as they hibernate. The fungus affects the bats causing them to be more active. In turn, they burn up too much fat and are unable to survive through the winter.
Many people have a fear of bats. This fear is called chiroptophobia. Please do not fear bats. They have gained a bad reputation due to horror films and misinformation. Instead, learn more about bats. You will see how beneficial they are to our ecosystem.
To learn more about white-nose syndrome and how you can help, contact you’re your local conservation group or state natural resource agency.
