Deadly bat fungus found in southern Indiana cave
Wildlife officials say a bat found in a southern Indiana cave has tested positive for the state's first instance of a fungus blamed for killing more than a million bats in the eastern United States. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources said Tuesday that a brown bat with white-nose syndrome was captured in late January inside Endless Cave near the Washington County town of Salem. The agency says more bats with signs of the disease were found during routine surveys at other caves. All state-managed caves have been closed to the public the past two years in an attempt to stem spread of the fungus, which people can spread by spores on their clothing. DNR deputy director John Davis urged private cave owners to do the same.

Those bats are dying in an "Endless Cave" of sadness.
You can build a bat house pretty easily. Maternity bathouses in particular are useful, if they are put up by April.
