Media Stories on WNS

Here a a few media stories on WNS. The audio interview with WVDNR's Craig Stihler is very good and informative. He has a style that is concise, yet informative.

This Internet piece has a couple of very interesting sidebars, particularly the one on estimating bat and other wildlife populations:

Its a problem, its a big problem,
They are not even talking about bats, but do say that the estimates are wrong! So as I had figured, they haven't even begun to state how they came to the many million number of bat deaths. Will they ever? probably not, just remember that as long as no one questions them, then that number becomes law! The NSS doesn't count because we have affiliations with them.

I would have to agree, they are not making cavers the bad guy , at least in this instance.
