Bats in Crisis is a video series put together by the National Park Service a couple of years ago. While this isn’t new information, we still find it to be of great value and thought it was worth sharing again.
The National Park Service provides great value to our environmental health. In the many, many years we have been performing bat removals we have had the great pleasure to work with the National Park Service on many of their buildings. They have a wonderful, healthy respect for all that bats do for us but understand the importance of not having bats living in a park picnic shelter, for example.
Why Should We Care About Bats in Crisis?
Bats are more than a “flying mouse”, as we often hear them called. Bats are fascinating creatures that deserve our respect. No, they aren’t cuddly creatures like our pet dogs, but they are very beautiful in their own way.
This introductory video to the three part Bats in Crisis series focuses on why bats are important and what they do for all of us.
From the National Park Service’s website: “White-nose syndrome (WNS) is a disease caused by a fungus, Geomyces destructans, that is threatening cave-hibernating bat populations in our national parks. Learn more about white-nose syndrome and the efforts different parks, such as Mammoth Cave National Park and Lava Beds National Monument, are making to identify and respond to this deadly disease. With your help, we hope to minimize the risk of the spread of white-nose syndrome to protect these wonderful creatures for future generations to enjoy. Visit the white-nose syndrome website.”
We hope you enjoy.
