"Scientists Go To Bat For Halloween’s Iconic, At-Risk Species"

"Federal agencies and their allies are reinforcing the fight against the scary and, yes, tricky disease that’s been wiping out bat populations.

In this month of Halloween, the Fish and Wildlife Service is offering grant treats of between $50,000 and $300,000 to scientists researching what the agency calls “biotechnological tools” that might combat white-nose syndrome.

All told, FWS will provide $1.5 million in this newest round of grant funding, which comes at a seemingly propitious time."
