A BBC report shows that at least 5.7 million bats across 16 US states and Canada have died from White-nose syndrome.
I decided that in order to do a TV package well, it had to be a subject I personally find interesting. Why choose to do something that you wouldn’t watch yourself? I love animals, ergo I’ll do a package on animals.
The media is very quick to jump on the bandwagon for cute and fluffy species (point in case with the otter story being blown out of proportion in my post below), but when it comes to the less adorable crtitters, their attention seems to taper…
I am therefore going to give these bats the full recognition they deserve (in my opinion) and challenge how far to take a story that is neither about human lives or classically ‘cute’ points of nature.
