Biologists are fighting to reverse one of the most devastating population declines to afflict North America’s wildlife, and you just might have the solution.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the White-nose Syndrome Response Team are seeking the help of ordinary citizens, innovative scientists and novel problem-solvers to leave no stone un-turned in the search for a permanent solution.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has announced a $100,000 challenge to combat the fungus that causes white-nose syndrome. Awards of up to $20,000 are available for individuals or teams who identify innovative ways to permanently eradicate, weaken, or disarm the fungus.
Additional information regarding rules and eligibility is available at www.whitenosesyndrome.org and on www.challenge.gov.
