It is not often your donation is worth twice as much!
The matched donations will go towards a $20,000 management fund that is required as part of the Edgewood Trails land transfer to an Ontario Land Trust (rare Charitable Research Reserve) in order to preserve Edgewood Trails for future generations.

Anne Innis Dagg had a dream from a very young age: to study giraffes & be a professor. She fought to go on a pioneering journey to study giraffes in South Africa in 1956 and is credited with being the first to study giraffes and to study animals in the wild in Africa.
Her trailblazing field research resulted in many scientific papers and the book The Giraffe: Its Biology, Behaviour and Ecology, (1976). Referred to today as the the “bible on giraffes” by scientists, conservation biologists and zookeepers worldwide, it is the most influential book on the species ever written. Shortly after its publication the intrepid adventurer hit an unforeseen obstacle and disappeared from the giraffe world. This left the research community asking: What happened to Anne Innis Dagg?
