Aspirational goal: No one drowns

In the five years between 2009-2013, an average of 108 people have died from drowning in New Zealand waters each year. 

Water Safety New Zealand is committed to lowering the drowning toll through policy, sector advocacy and research. 

WSNZ works together with the sector to develop a national culture of safe enjoyment around water.
