White nose syndrome

I was coming back from dropping Chris off and chatting with Cullen about one of the best summers I ever had, spent roaming the hills of West Virginia, swimming in South Carolina and caving in Kentucky, and ended up looking up one of the caves I enjoyed. Sadly it's now closed, which made me wonder why. My research led me to read about white nose syndrome, which is incredibly depressing, and made me immediately think about colony collapse, which is affecting the bees.

White nose syndrome (WNS) is a poorly understood malady associated with the deaths of more than a million bats

So sad. Be sure to read the part about impact.
