White Nose Syndrome in western North America
In March 2016 WNS was found in Washington state. Wanderlust Tours is committed to cooperating with state and federal agencies, as well as conservation groups, to provide information to the public on the value of bats and the threat posed by WNS. Some of our Bend-area caves serve as winter hibernaculum which we do not visit. We operate cave tours year-round where bats do not hibernate. If you want to learn more about WNS in the U.S., we encourage you to visit this website: http://www.nwhc.usgs.gov/disease_information/white-nose_syndrome/
Thanks for your interest in protecting our landscape!
