BBC News - White-nose syndrome in bats continues to spread

A fungal disease that has killed more than 5.5 million bats is continuing to spread across North America.

White-nose syndrome, first recorded in New York in 2006, is now present in 20 states and four Canadian provinces.

Research just published provides further evidence that the disease is caused by the fungus, and that it originated in Europe.

Last year, researchers and policymakers agreed on a national action plan in order to limit the disease's impact.



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
