LA Times Reporters Visit Caves to Check for White-Nose Syndrome
LA Times photographer Marc Martin and writer Louis Sahagun recently tagged along with a group of cavers and biologists from the US Bureau of Land Management on a visit to check caves in New Mexico for White-nose Syndrome.
The team visited Fort Stanton Cave near Ruidoso, New Mexico followed by a stop at Ladrone Cave, near Socorro about 175 kilometers (100 miles) away. Thankfully no bats were found infected with WNS during the visits.
