New app for adventure seekers to stay safe in NZ

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:40 pm on 17 May 2021

There's been a new development that could help keep walkers and trampers safer in the New Zealand bush.

The NZ Mountain Safety Council has just launched a free app to help Kiwis plan and prepare for their adventures - it's being described as a world-first. The council's chief executive Mike Daisley joins Jesse to explain the app and how it works.
