Bat Mystery Gets A Major Break
Ann Froschauer of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service delivers promising news about the effort to stop the spread of White Nose Syndrome, a mysterious and irrepressible disease that has confounded scientists and killed millions of North American bats since 2006. Following that, Sam Litzinger speaks with retired naval officer Karen Jeffries about her non-profit organization Veterans Moving Forward, which trains service dogs for use by injured military personnel. Then we hear “BirdNote” and a few suggestions about fostering a child’s appreciation of birds and nature in general.
