Join Alan Hicks, retired bat biologist for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as he discusses the history of bat research and management in New York. Revisit the bright future of these interesting creatures in the state prior to the appearance of the disease White-nose Syndrome, and the subsequent crash that took common and secure species to endangered status in less than a decade. Review ongoing efforts to deal with this disease and similar problems that are looming on the horizon for other species.
