NFWF Announces $1.36 Million in Grants to Find Cure for Bat Disease

In the hopes of delivering a Halloween treat for bats, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) today announced more than $1.36 million in grants to combat white-nose syndrome (WNS) and promote the survival of bats in North America. The grants were awarded through the Bats for the Future Fund (BFF), a public-private partnership between NFWF, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Forest Service, Shell Oil Company and Southern Company.
