The Woman Who Loves Giraffes
$12; 5-day rental period

Before Jane Goodall, before Dian Fossey, there was Anne Innis Dagg. This documentary tells the story of this Canadian biologist who in 1956 made an unprecedented solo journey to South Africa to become the first person in the world to study animal behavior in the wild in Africa. When she returned home a year later, the insurmountable barriers she faced as a female scientist proved much harder to overcome than her time in the wild. Rent "The Woman Who Loves Giraffes"
