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.

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.
