Everything Animals: White Nose syndrome

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

White Nose Syndrome has caused the Vermont bat population to shrink. Now the Fish and Wildlife Department is racing to save the winged creatures.

Biologists say some bats may have a resistance to the fungus which clings to bat caves. Scientists are now studying the resistant bat population in the hopes of learning what can be done to keep Vermont bats alive.

Biologist Alyssa Bennett visited the Morning Show to share the latest tactics in trying to revive the bat population.

Vermonters can also help researchers with online donations. Visit the nongame wildlife fund to learn more.
