    Virtual Winter Wildlife Series — Unraveling the Mysteries of Southeast Alaska Bats in Winter
    7–8pm. White-nose Syndrome is a fungal disease that attacks and kills hibernating bats. Bats in eastern North America hibernate in caves and mines, often in large groups, which has resulted in high mortality in some species, including the little brown bat. Where western little brown bats hibernate was unknown, but a long-term study in Juneau, Alaska has been slowly unraveling the mystery of what bats in Southeast Alaska do in the winter. In this talk researchers show how they tackled the challenges of finding where bats go in winter, what they found, and how the very different hibernation ecology of Alaska's little brown bats may help protect them from WNS. Registration is required.
