Addison McCool, Senior Director
From a young age, Addison has always surrounded herself with animals. She grew up riding and showing horses, donkeys and mules, as well as rescuing dogs and small animals. She hopes to pursue a degree in Aquatic Biology in the future, and in her free time she enjoys hiking, camping, and exploring national and state parks. After spending time working in Yellowstone National Park, she found her love for bats while rescuing downed insect bats in the historic lodge she worked in. Since joining the team at Bat World that love for bats has only grown, and she always looks forward to learning more about such an incredible, misunderstood animal.
Moriah Adams, Senior Bat Caregiver
Moriah has been fortunate to have worked with many species during her time volunteering at rehab facilities and working at the Dallas Zoo. She has a B.S. in Aquatics and Fisheries Biology and enjoys spending time on the water. Since she was a small child she has surrounded herself with the company of animals, basically welcoming anything with hooves, paws, scales or claws. Moriah feels as though conservation and education are key to the preservation of species. “So many people have disdain for bats only because they know very little about them. I’m so pleased to have found Bat World and look forward to not only expanding my knowledge of bats, but also sharing that information with others.”
