North Country Public Radio had a update this morning about white-nose syndrome. They interviewed Scott Darling, a biologist for Vermont State, who estimated that Vermont has lost upwards of 400,000 bats in the last two years. WNS has just now been documented in Ontario and Quebec, and from what researchers have found, they suspect it could spread as far south at Georgia. To hear NCPR's story, follow this link and listen to the audio report by Brian Mann: http://www.northcountrypublicradio.org/news.php.
