Goal: 25,000 Progress: 20,268

Have you ever heard of the theory that says just one flap of a butterfly's wings can cause a hurricane on the other side of the earth? Whether the theory is true or not, small changes can have drastic effects on other seemingly unrelated circumstances.

That's what will happen if we see more bat deaths due to the disease white-nose syndrome. Because bats eat insects, a decline in bat populations would be mean disaster for crops across the country. Increased pesticide use could cost the US billions of dollars.

A bat population decline would no doubt affect the rest of the country gravely. Almost seven million bats have perished since 2006 as a result of white-nose syndrome — it's being labeled the worst wildlife health emergency in US history.

Congress members have called for greater funding to combat this disease. Sign below supporting their tireless work to save bats — and America's farmland!

Dear Senators Patrick Leahy and Frank Lautenberg:

Thank you for fighting to keep bats alive, and consequently, helping save America's crop and farmland.

White-nose syndrome is spreading vehemently among North American bat populations, and since 2006, has killed close to seven million bats. Bats eat insects, thereby naturally controlling much of the instect population that destroys crops and produce. If bat numbers decline, major crop losses could occur. It could subsequently cost America billions dollars in pesticides.

We can't afford to lose these bats — not only for the sake of animal preservation but for the health of our crops and the financial state of our government.

Please continue to fight for funding on behalf of these bats.

Thank you!
