Wondering where you can find some world class spelunking? How about right here in the Cave State? Missouri is home to more than 6,000 caves, with more discovered every year. Those caves are home to exciting geology, to be sure -- but they're also home to everything from blind cavefish, to Indiana bats, to ancient artifacts.
This hour, we'll take a look at the biology, geology and history of Missouri caves. We'll also get an update on the state's efforts to fight white nose syndrome, the fungus that's killing bats in the east. We're broadcasting this week from St Louis, Missouri, as the guests of KWMU.
