The Responsible Caver and White-nose Syndrome Decontamination

The Cave Research Foundation in partnership with the USDA Forest Service's Monongahela National Forest produced this 21-minute video for training people who conduct approved research in caves on the Forest. The film provides an overview of the importance of bats, the threat of white-nose syndrome and the importance of decontaminaton. It is also a great example of the importance of working together to conserve bats.
