Introduction This sign, posting cave access restrictions at Clifty Falls State Park in southern Indiana, is the Indiana Department of Natural Resource's response to the lethal threat posed by White-Nose Syndrome to various cave-inhabiting bat species. Similar efforts to restrict human access to bat-inhabited caves and sinkholes have been initiated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Author: Douglas Stemke. Directed by David McGowan. White nose syndrome is an ecological disaster. It has killed over seven million bats since It is the worst wildlife crisis ever to hit North America, yet there is hope. Several U.S. and Canadian agencies have collaborated on possible solutions to this horrific disease. The public also plays a critical role in helping to save bats.
