Holy Stalactites, Batman! There's Corvette Glue in the Batcave!

Calling all Batfriends!

Bats in North America are in trouble. White nose syndrome, a fungus-based disease is killing a large number of bats in the Northeast, and there are signs that the disease is spreading significantly. WNS is already affecting a number of endangered species and has the potential to be cataclysmic for bat populations. To learn more about WNS, visit this site: whitenosesyndrome.org

And, if you would like to know more about bats in our part of the country, visit our neighbors a few hours east of here at the Bat World Sanctuary.

This morning, I was checking out AutoBlogGreen and ran across an article about GM using adhesive from Corvettes and battery boxes from Volts to help create healthier conditions for hibernating bats. These healthier conditions would allow bats to have more space which can slow the spread of the white nose fungus.

May our dream cars become superheroes, and may we do all we can to stop the destruction of our endangered neighbors.

PS. It's election day - get out and vote! (For info on locations and candidates, read yesterday's MH entry.)
