The Department of Biology is pleased to present Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas as the inaugural speaker of the Anne Innis Dagg Lecture Series. Dr. Galdikas, from the Department of Archaeology at Simon Fraser University and the founder and President of Orangutan Foundation International, is the world's foremost authority on the orangutans of Borneo, having studied them in the wild for almost 50 years in Tanjung Puting National Park in Indonesia.
Dr. Anne Innis Dagg is a biologist who was the first person to study giraffes in the wild in Africa starting in the 1950s. Her life was featured in a 2018 documentary "The woman who loves giraffes" which drew worldwide attention. The Department of Biology has established the Anne Innis Dagg Lecture Series to promote women in science by honouring Dr. Innis Dagg's career and accomplishments.
