Dan Riskin sits down with Anne Innis Dagg, a pioneering Canadian zoologist who literally wrote the book on giraffe. Anne was the first Western scientist to travel to Africa to study the behaviour of any animal in the wild. She changed the way the world understands giraffe, but she was denied tenure at a Canadian university for being a woman.
