Ask President Obama to Fund Bat Saving Research
White-nose syndrome is a real-life horror for bats and is decimating bat populations across the country. Nine species of bats are at risk from the epidemic. Two of those species, Indiana and gray bats, are already endangered.
Extensive research is needed to find out what causes white-nose syndrome among bats and how to stop it.
Bats serve a vital role in our ecosystem. They are one of nature's most prolific insect predators, vital pollinators and seed-dispersers for many plants. Bats allow farmers to use less pesticides on the food we eat and prevent the spread of insect-borne diseases.
Please take action for bats by asking President Obama to allocate desperately needed funding to stop white-nose syndrome.
