In 1956, four years before Jane Goodall ventured into the world of chimpanzees, 23-year-old biologist Anne Innis Dagg made an unprecedented solo journey to South Africa to study giraffes in the wild. In Alison Reid's new documentary "The Woman Who Loves Giraffes," Anne, now 85, retraces her steps—and with letters and stunning, original 16mm footage, the film offers an intimate window into her life as a young woman, juxtaposed with a first hand look at the devastating reality that giraffes are facing today.

As the world's first 'giraffologist', Anne's research findings ultimately became the foundation for many scientists following in her footsteps. Through the years, both she and the species she loves have experienced triumphs as well as setbacks, and "The Woman Who Loves Giraffes" gives us a moving perspective on both.
