I'd already posted it on the B.salamandrivorans Facebook page :-)

Hello Amphibian Scientists/Biologists:


Most of you have heard about Bsal (Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans).  Thought I’d share a fun rap video that some of our students in the UT Center for Wildlife Health put together on this pathogen:




They created it as part of a 3-min video UT competition to highlight student research.  If you like it, you can vote here (it is video 2).


https://ugresearch.utk.edu/research-week/3-minutes-to-win-it-research-challenge/2018-3-minutes-to-win-it-video-submissions/ (deadline for voting is Fri, 2 April).


Please feel free to post and distribute.  Possibly an alternative way to make the public aware of this recently discovered, emerging pathogen.


All the Best, Matt
