What We Do/White-nose Syndrome

How You Can Help


  • Encourage your state and federal legislators to allocate funding towards the effort to understand and fight White-nose Syndrome.

  • Report unusual late-winter bat behavior (bats flying during the daytime, for example) or unexplained bat deaths to your state wildlife agency.

  • Adhere to state, federal and local cave advisories and closures to help us prevent the transmission of White-nose Syndrome.

  • Educate your friends and families about the benefits of bats and the White-nose Syndrome crisis.

  • Follow decontamination guidelines when caving and catching bats. Never bring gear from a WNS-positive state to a WNS-negative state.

Donate to our WNS emergency fund and other bat conservation initiatives.
