New Zealand received a $5,880 grant to run a New Zealand Land Search and Rescue Inc. (LandSAR) camp for leading tracking practitioners to further hone their skills.
The organisation is one of 15 groups and individuals to benefit from the Mazda Foundation’s latest funding round which has seen more than $52,000 donated to a range of causes throughout New Zealand.
“The four-day camp will ensure LandSAR groups possess the range of professional skills, local knowledge of terrain, conditions and experience for local search and rescue incidents,” said Wendy Waller, New Zealand Land Search and Rescue.
LandSAR is the national volunteer organisation within New Zealand providing land search and rescue services to the Police and public of New Zealand.
