$2M For Community Drowning Prevention Programmes

Nov. 4, 2021, 2:19 p.m.

Te Tai Tokerau has one of the highest annual drowning rates in Aotearoa and Rob Hewitt for Water Safety New Zealand says 16% of drownings throughout Aotearoa happen to be Māori. Jury Greenland, the Founder of Moana Futures has been diving for many years and uses his extensive experience to pass his knowledge to many generations. Diving for kaimoana has been noted as one of the most high-risk activities in the water, so Jury will be visiting parts of Te Tai Tokerau to run programmes that aim to improve knowledge, attitude and behaviour around water.
