New Year Honours: North Shore's Dame Anne Salmond awarded New Zealand's highest royal honour

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

How does one sum up a distinguished career upon being awarded New Zealand's highest royal honour?

“It’s always been this huge adventure,” Dame Anne Salmond says of her career as an anthropologist, environmentalist and multi award-winning author, unable to settle on a particular highlight.

Salmond's work has been recognised with a multitude of awards and honours.

Despite this, Salmond, a resident of Stanley Point, said she was stunned and overwhelmed to receive a letter telling her she had been named a Member of the Order of New Zealand for services to New Zealand in the 2021 New Year Honours.

Gutterkitties Adoption

Mae from Unsworth Heights

Alien is only just 1 year old and full of energy! He needs a home that is able to play with him lots! Not allowed outside unsupervised as he has weak back legs and is not very smart so he could get into danger easily. He is a perky sociable boy once he loves you, but he is shy to start out. With consistent love and care and lots of his favourite food he'll be won over for sure. Would be ideal without dogs and small children as he is quick to defend when startled. Other cats in the household should be open to lots of playtime as he enjoys wrestling and chasing possible cat friends.

Please contact me at 0212308277 to ask about a visit with him!
