Bats in Crisis: NPS Releases White-Nose Syndrome Video Series
Titled “Bats in Crisis”, the three video series is aimed to educate the public and features National Park Service scientists, technicians, and educators discussing the disease, how it’s affecting bats and what’s being done about it.
We need the public’s help to limit the spread of this disease so we are asking visitors to take a look at these videos and understand what steps they can take when touring or exploring caves. Jonathan B. Jarvis, National Park Service Director
So far 10 national parks have had bats test positive for white-nose syndrome. These include Acadia National Park, Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park, Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, New River Gorge National River, Ozark National Scenic Riverways, Russell Cave National Monument and most recently Mammoth Cave National Park and Cumberland Gap National Historical Park.
