ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT PROFILE

PROTECTION STATUS: State-listed as threatened in Pennsylvania and Vermont, listed as endangered in New Hampshire

PETITIONED: 2010

RANGE: Relatively widespread in southeastern Canada and the eastern United States, but distribution is uneven and populations are generally small; largest known populations in Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia and Virginia

THREATS: White-nose syndrome; habitat destruction including mineral extraction, logging, residential and agricultural development; environmental contaminants; wind energy; climate change

POPULATION TREND: This species is declining in the eastern portion of its range due to white-nose syndrome. As the disease spreads westward and southward, it is likely to decline throughout its range.
