Bunkers offer bats refuge from killer disease

1 post in this topic

Cold War nuclear bunkers are the latest attempt to safeguard US bat populations under attack from white-nose syndrome.

Scientists have converted two of the 43 bunkers at the former Loring Air Force Base, Maine, which has been a wildlife reserve since the mid-1990s.

The artificial hibernacula are designed to safeguard bats from the disease that was first recorded in the US in 2006.
