North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission
The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission is conducting surveillance for the presence and prevalence of White Nose Syndrome (WNS) throughout North Carolina and monitoring bat populations year-round to determine the effects of White Nose Syndrome on our bats. This includes monitoring caves for hibernating bats, mist-netting, and acoustic monitoring during the maternity period. NCWRC is coordinating the implementation and updating of the North Carolina White-nose Surveillance and Response plan. The state is also providing support to researchers that are studying White Nose Syndrome.
