The United States has announced the listing of three colored bats on the endangered species list.
White-nose syndrome is destroying tricolor bats, including other races, at an unprecedented rate
White-nose syndrome caused a 90% reduction in the population of three colored bats.
Crossing the city: Federal officials in the United States announced Tuesday the listing of tricolor bats on the endangered species list. It is the second bat breed recommended for inclusion in the US Endangered Species List due to a rapidly spreading fungal infection in bats. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has recommended removing the long-eared bat breed from the endangered species list and putting it on the endangered species list because these creatures are on the brink of extinction.
Long-eared bats and tricolor bats are among a dozen breeds of bats in North America that struggle with “white nose syndrome.” The disease disrupts the winter hibernation of these breeds, vital for their survival. Martha Williams, director of the Fish and Wildlife Service, said: “White-nose syndrome is destroying other species, including tricolor bats, at an unprecedented rate.”

“Bats play a vital role in ensuring a healthy ecosystem. The Fish and Wildlife Service is committed to continuing its extensive research efforts and collaborating with partners to reduce and sustain further impacts to tricolored bats.
According to the US administration, bats provide an annual $3 billion boost to the US agricultural economy through pest control and crop pollination. White-nose syndrome, which first emerged in the US state of New York in 2006, has since led to a 90% reduction in the population of tricolor bats.
