The Guy In Little Ferry Who Lived With Bats by Kaitlin Elizabeth published on 2016-08-29T17:33:15Z HOST INTRO: New Jersey's Batman Joey D'Angeli has loved bats since he was kid, and has longed lived what he refers to as a "noctural lifestyle." For years, D'Angeli has been living with bats-at first in his own home. He opened the Wild Life! Conservation Center in Ridgefield Park, NJ in 2008, and is currently working to educate people about White Nose Syndrome, the fungus that has been killing bats on the east coast since 2006 and was just recently found in Washington state. Our reporter Kate Cough, spoke to D'Angeli outside the center.
