Presentation on the current pros and cons of LED lighting.
White-nose syndrome has devastated bat populations across the eastern United States during the past four years, causing “the most precipitous wildlife decline in the past century in North America,” according to biologists. And it keeps spreading into new areas. It has moved north into Canada, south into Tennessee and as far east as Oklahoma. Ultimately, bats all across North America are at risk. This presentation will provide the latest information on White-nose Syndrome and its spread, and discuss how WNS is impacting show caves and what show caves and other agencies are doing to help.
