Detailed Description

One hour recording of a lecture and slide presentation about White-Nose syndrome in bats, by Peter Youngbaer
Sponsored jointly by the USGS and the San Francisco Bay Chapter of the
National Speleological Society, Mr. Youngbaer addressed the topic of
White Nose Syndrome, a fungus associated with decimation of bat populations
in the northeastern United States, but which is spreading south and west,
reaching as far west as Missouri earlier this year. The lecture covered: what is
killing our bats, what's being done about it, and what you can do to help
USGS scientists and others address this critical issue.
