Detailed Description

Imagery from temperature-sensing cameras showing bats in hibernation. This new footage suggests that bats who warm up from hibernation together throughout the winter may be better at surviving white nose syndrome, a disease caused by a cold-loving fungus ravaging insect-eating bat populations in the United States and Canada. Locations: Gap Cave,125 Cumberland Gap National Historical Park (CGNHP), Lee County, Virginia, USA, and Wyandotte Cave,126 O'Bannon Woods State Park, Crawford County, Indiana, USA.
