Help Stop the Spread of White-Nose Syndrome in Bats

Bats are dying in alarming numbers, suffering from a devastating disease known as white-nose syndrome. This disease has killed more than a million bats in the Eastern United States during the last four winters and is now moving westward.

Contact the following agencies and urge them to close caves and mines on Federal lands in the contiguous 48 states to allow scientists time to determine how the white-nose syndrome disease is being spread and if humans are playing a role in transmitting it.
