Event Date:
Wednesday, May 25, 2022, 7:00 pm

The Atlantic Veterinary College is pleased to welcome Dr. Anne Innis Dagg for a documentary screening of “The Woman Who Loves Giraffes,” as well as a question-and-answer session on Wednesday, May 25, from 7–9 p.m. ADT.

In 1956, four years before Jane Goodall ventured into the world of chimpanzees and seven years before Dian Fossey left to work with mountain gorillas, 23-year-old Canadian biologist Anne Innis Dagg made an unprecedented solo journey to South Africa. Through this journey, Dr. Dagg become the first person in the world to study animal behaviour in the wild on that continent. In this documentary, Dr. Dagg re-traces the steps of her groundbreaking journey to South Africa to study giraffes in the wild – and discovers a startling contrast between the world of giraffes she once knew and the one it has become. Weaving through the past and present, her harrowing journey gives us an intimate look into the factors that destroyed her career and the forces that brought her back.
