Bat Request / by Brandon

I've always tried to keep this site separate from my work, but there's an exception to every rule.

Right now I'm working on a story about White Nose Syndrome, a disease that's killing cave-dwelling American bats at a pace unprecedented in known animal history. The work will be published on Wired and is being produced through, a service that allows citizens to directly support journalism they care about -- journalism that is, sadly, dwindling in a time of free content and pageview-driven metrics and general economic catastrophe.

If you've happened to stumble across my site, I invite you to read my pitch on and consider donating. If money's tight, you don't even need to give from your pocket; right now you can earn money for the story just by taking a poll. Your help will make this story possible.

Thank you,
