White-nose syndrome (WNS) is a wildlife disease responsible for unprecedented bat mortality in the northeastern United States. Since it was discovered in 2006, more than 5.5 million bats have died and the fungus that causes the disease, Geomyces destructans (Gd), has been detected as far west as Oklahoma. The Northeast Region of the US Fish and Wildlife Service has developed a set of Frequently Asked Questions about WNS, and Bat Conservation International also provides a good overview of WNS.
