Informative Article by Mark Elderkin on Nova Scotiaís vanishing bats  
is in today's  Chronicle Herald - The Nova Scotian

http://thechronicleherald.ca/thenovascotian/1138588-nova-scotia-s-vanishing-bats

" ....So what can Nova Scotians do to help?

"This summer, record every bat you see: write down the date and time,  
numbers, behaviours and location. If you have a nursery colony in your  
roofline, wait for a warm summer evening, take your favourite  
beverage, family and friends with lawn chairs and count bats as they  
emerge from the house.

"Donít go in abandoned mines and caves because you may spread the  
white-nose fungus. If you do know where bats were hibernating last  
winter, or did hibernate in the past, this is very important  
information for future conservation initiatives."
