White Nose Syndrome
White Nose Syndrome (WNS) is continuing to impact bats and caves. Last winter, WNS was confirmed in 5 counties in Tennessee and suspected in a sixth. It is likely we will see further spread in Tennessee this winter. The Nashville Grotto strongly encourages cavers to observe caving moratoria in WNS-infected areas, and stresses the importance of proper gear decontamination after all caving trips.
For more information on WNS please see the NSS white nose page.
