This important information comes to us from The Wildlife Conservation Society of Canada

For a PDF Version click HERE

When deciding whether your geocache site should be located in a cave/mine, please consider the following:

There is a newly discovered fungus (White Nose Syndrome) killing bats in caves and mines while they hibernate. Over 5 million bats have already died from this in North America since it was first discovered in 2006.

If you have been in other caves or mines (especially outside of B.C.), please do not enter underground areas as you may inadvertently track in spores of this fungus. If you must enter, please be sure to thoroughly decontaminate clothing/equipment before entry (following protocols on www.whitenosesyndrome.org ). This can be as easy as washing your clothes in hot water, and removing all mud from your boots.
