Fungus outbreak threatens US bats

White nose syndrome has left millions of North American bats dead and disrupted food chains.



    A fungus called White Nose Syndrome is killing millions of North American bats.

    Bats are natural pest-controllers, eating millions of insects that would otherwise damage crops.

    The fungus first appeared in 2006, and has been spreading ever since, disrupting food chains along the way.
