- Kernohan, Anne, 1955-
Anne Kernohan talks about her change from a high-powered job in Auckland, with children in day-care, to Great Barrier Island, seeking a different life-style. Recalls her experiences as a veterinary surgeon and compares attitudes to animals on Great Barrier Island with those of city people - feels animal owners in the Island are more realistic about euthanasia. Gives analysis of her work - 60% is with dogs (pig dogs) and 20% cats, which is reverse in town. Feels there are a lot more people now on the Island than when she arrived and feels it is a cosmopolitan island and gives examples: Swiss in Rosalie Bay; Canadians and Australians. Explains how she treats wild birds free, and finds it an interesting aspect of her work. Mentions: Harrier Hawk, kingfishers and native pigeons.
