Could some bat species go extinct?
Yes. The northern long-eared bat is perhaps the hardest hit of all bat species affected thus far. It has declined at rates of 99 percent or greater in several eastern states, and its entire 37-state range in the United States is now almost entirely encompassed within the zone of white-nose syndrome. The Center petitioned for the northern long-eared bat and the eastern small-footed bat to be listed on the federal endangered species list in 2010. The . Fish and Wildlife Service listed the northern long-eared bat as threatened in 2015, but unfortunately, the agency backpedaled from its original recommendation that the species be listed as endangered, due to political pressure from industry and conservative politicians.
Treatment involves coordination of multiple community services. Social services are needed to ensure a safe home environment and provide parental education. Educational support often is needed most. Early identification and intervention results in significantly improved outcomes. A diagnosis of FAS meets the “presumptive diagnosis” requirements of Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, allowing children younger than three years to receive services even if their test results fall in the normal range. After three years of age, eligibility for services often depends on demonstration of a specific functional deficit.
