Awesome Dancing Bats

06/12/2014

I had to share this little bit of awesomeness.

On a more serious note, bats are in trouble in North America. For the last several years, they have been wiped out in the millions by a mysterious disease called White-Nose Syndrome.  The name comes from the white fungus that appears on the faces of affected bats. 

You can help bats locally by installing a bat house. You can build one or you can purchase one with the stamp of approval of Bat Conservation International. 

Here's a photo of a Tri-colored bat suffering from White-Nose Syndrome from the US Fish and Wildlife Service Headquarters' Flickr page.
