WNS Update

July 9, 2014

Not exclusively an urban wildlife issue by any stretch, but a recent Wall Street Journal article just reported that the steep population decline in little brown bats in New York State has appeared to level off. Little brown bats are one of the species hardest-hit by white-nose syndrome, so this is potentially good news! However, little brown populations (and other bat species) are still in steep decline in other parts of the country, and WNS is still spreading across the country.

For more information on WNS, check out the Save Lucy Campaign and Bat Conservation International’s WNS information page.
