Help the bats!
I never considered myself a bat lover, but I've never had anything against them either.. Just another one of God's creatures just tryin' to get along!
Well, New Yorks bats, and the bats of numerous other locales also, are in trouble due to an ailment called "White Nose syndrome". It affects cave dwelling bats, and it is taking a toll on the population in New York.
Research is being started to try to get a handle on the problem, and hopefully find a solution..
Here is some information for anyone that has the time and inclination to help out, and while you're reading, look over the rest of this nature blog called The Adirondack Naturalist..
There's some great reading, informative topics, and the writer has a great little dog that accompanies her in her travels, and that's always a great thing to see...
