National Park Service

The national park system contains 397 units. 1 in 4 of these units have caves and 1 in 3 contain mines that can provide habitat for bats and other organisms. White-nose syndrome is threatening bat populations and conservation, as well as visitor use of recreational caves and the enjoyment of bats in NPS units. Bats also have an important role in ecosystem functions such as: eating insects, pollinating plants, dispensing seeds and serving as prey themselves; their conservation is vital.
