  • Bats hanging in the balance: Fungal infection threatens fate of millions

    Jan 17, 2013

    When most people think of bats, they picture creepy little flying creatures that terrify small villages; leaving a trail of chaos, destruction and death in their wake. We are all familiar with at least one scary bat movie. Seeing the flash of their menacing fangs or hearing the swooshing of a thousand bat wings can create a true feeling of dread. But the real dread concerning hibernating bats is a fatal disease called White Nose Syndrome; named for the white fungus evident on the muzzles and wings of affected bats. WNS is responsible for killing more than six million bats in the eastern United States in a little over seven years. WNS was first reported in the New York area in late 2006. The fungus that causes WNS is suspected to have been brought from Europe by cavers. The disease then spread rapidly through the eastern part of the United States. Fort Campbell Wildlife Program Manager Gene Zirkle said, "The most difficult part about this disease is where it may crop up next. The hardest part is not knowing -- not knowing what we may be dealing with four counties over and how that will affect us here on Fort Campbell." Death from WNS is quite traumatic for the bat. According to Fort Campbell Endangered Species Coordinator Amie Lehman, the fungus that causes WNS is an irritant and this irritant causes the bat to scratch. The scratching wakes the bat during hibernation. The bats then lose their fat reserves, which they need to survive hibernation, long before the winter is over. They often leave their hibernacula during the winter and die. The first sign that WNS had touched the Fort Campbell footprint was in March of 2010. Fort Campbell Endangered Species Biologist Morgan Kurz discovered WNS in a nearby cave.
