Everyone loves the great NZ outdoors but with that beauty comes a very serious weather system.

NZ has some of the most dangerous yet beautiful bush in the world and to go with that wild untamed bush is the very serious weather patterns.

There are to many UN-prepared NZ and overseas tourist people who go out into the bush thinking that they have enough supplies. On a yearly average there are 5 deaths, 500 rescues and over 4000 injuries. The most common death is hypathermia, this is simply because people get lost or try to get out of the bush and the weather dramatically changes. The main problem here is by the time the person is reported missing it is all ready to late to find and save them from the cold.

These deaths are easily avoidable, all that was needed was some simple knowledge of how to reconise that the weather was too dangerous and that they needed to get out or they would die. Not everyone will be an expert at this but if you can simply reconise that there is a major danger and that you need to find shelter that will be enough to prevent you from dieing.
