COVID and WHITE TAIL DEER

Hmmm, never thought about it till I came across this story from NPR.   What makes it even more interesting is that the study was done across PA with 93 dead deer. End result was a “nearly 20% coronavirus positivity rate.” There’s also a second study that’s been done in southwestern and eastern Ontario that used 300 deer and is pending review. Big question, how did they contract it?

CLIMBERS, BATS & BIOLOGISTS

In our younger days Wags and I were climbers (he way more advanced than me). So when I saw a Zoom meeting titled, “Climbers for Bat Conservation in PA” I signed in. Dr Shawn K Davis of Parks, Conservation, and Recreational Therapy Department at Slippery Rock University (724-738-2599) lead the meeting.  In a nutshell, climbers are reporting in  when they see bats. Bats in crevices (you won’t believe how far back they can go), bats flying, bats where ever.  Biologist learn so much from these sightings that bats may have a rosier future ahead! Climbers are learning too and together there is now a gathering of information internationally. Find out more at CLIMBERS for Bat Conservation. Here’s a link to the ZOOM meeting!
