Anne Innis Dagg is a Senior Advisor for the Independent Studies Program at the University of Waterloo, Canada. Her passion for giraffe has inspired much of her research. In 1976 she co-authored the first scientific book on the species, and in 2010 she was honoured at the inaugural meeting of the International Association of Giraffe Care Professionals. Anne was also awarded "The Anne Dagg Pioneer Award" for giraffes, in recognition of her much earlier 1956-7 pioneering observations on these animals living in the bushveld area of South Africa.
Anne Innis Dagg is the author of Giraffe: Biology, Behaviour, and Conservation. She is also the author of Animal Friendships (Cambridge, 2011).
