What We Do/White-nose Syndrome

Program Overview


This program focuses on species and population conservation of bats threatened by White-nose Syndrome. BCI has taken a strong collaborative approach for range-wide, long-term species conservation. We work with a variety of state, federal, and private partners to identify and implement critical conservation actions.

Goal
To conserve bat populations and prevent species extinctions by helping to halt the spread of White-nose Syndrome and to mitigate its impact.

Program Objectives
BCI’s objectives target four key areas:

  • Communications and outreach to decision-makers and the public.

  • Management and conservation of bats and their habitats in the path of White-nose Syndrome.

  • Facilitating response and recovery in areas where White-nose Syndrome is present.

  • Supporting research through partnerships and a competitive grants program.
