we must not be defeated…

Hi Everyone,

A famous poet named Maya Angelou passed away this week. She worked for equal rights. I am dedicating this week’s blog to her.

One of her quotes is, “We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” Even though she said this about the fight for equal rights, I thought it could also relate to bats with White Nose Syndrome. Right now, it doesn’t look good for our bats. I think that even though we are suffering through a huge defeat, if we work together, we can still succeed and not be defeated. I think that with all the research that is being done right now, they will eventually be able to cure the disease. Let’s all hope that they are able to do this before too many more bats die.

And here is a happy bat picture to encourage everyone…

A caring person rescued this tiny tricolored pup. That he existed at all is proof that some of our tricolored bats are still reproducing, even though they are rapidly disappearing because of WNS.
