Cave closure review 2010-2015. White-nose Syndrome (WNS) : a five year review of Government of Alberta cave closures

Description

In the summer of 2010, the Government of Alberta established temporary closures of known bat hibernacula under provincial authority in order to protect hibernating bats from White-nose Syndrome (WNS). Given that the voluntary closure has been in effect for the five years originally recommended, a review of the situation was completed. This report briefly summarizes the current status of WNS, the risks, and the recommended responses.
