White-nose syndrome in Alberta

Description

There is unprecedented mortality of hibernating bats in caves and mines in northeastern United States. In some situations, all the bats in individual caves died during the winter months, often with a white ring of fungus around their face. The problem is spreading rapidly. Local bat populations are seriously reduced and the effects will ripple throughout many ecosystems at a broad landscape level.
