Journey on the Sea

Three children on a wharf.
Illustrated birds eye view of a carnival.

by Clare Knighton

"Aotearoa is an island nation with more than 15,000 kilometres of coastline (only nine other countries have more). It’s no wonder so many of us love the water. But activities like swimming, surfing, fishing, and sailing all involve risk. On average, more than a hundred New Zealanders drown each year."
