Tennessee Bat Working Group.
White-nose Syndrome is a mysterious disease that is killing bats across the northeast United States. Many research projects are underway to help in the fight against WNS, from researching fungicides to modeling the spread and affects of the syndrome. If you would like to help there are many ways in which you can:
- Report any unusual bat activity (bats flying in the daytime) or unexplained bat deaths to your regional TWRA office. Or check out the Report a Bat Link on this website.
- Donate to a number of funds collecting money for WNS research (see National Speleological Society and Bat Conservation International pages below).
- Adhere to state and federal cave closure advisories.
- Encourage state and federal agencies to assist in WNS research and monitoring activities.
