Ridgefield Park Bat Expert Raises Awareness And Funds

RIDGEFIELD PARK — Bergen County’s “Batman” is staging a series of events to raise awareness for National Bat Month in October.

Joseph D’Angeli kicked off "Batstock" last month with a bat walk and other programs in partnership with three other national organizations at the Wildlife Center on Mt.Vernon Street.

It will come to a close at the end of the month with a performance by the Waldwick School of Rock in Teaneck.

“I took to bats when I was very young and got involved because I was just a fan for so many years,” said D’Angeli, who founded the Wildlife Conservation Foundation in Ridgefield Park and has been working with bats for more than 20 years.

“I loved bats because they’re so mysterious and associated with Batman, he said. "Everything aligned itself perfectly for the animal I fell in love with and am lucky enough to be able to work with.”

Proceeds collected from Batstock will go to research efforts, local bat rehabilitators and the Conservation.
