Where’s your wai?

Thanks to everyone who shared their swimming holes and other freshwater spots in our ‘Where’s your wai’ project!

Hands hold a smartphone with a map displayed.

Over 350 pins dropped!

During October and November 2018 we asked Northlanders to mark their freshwater spots on our online tool, and tell us a bit about it.

More than 350 pins were dropped, and we’re now working through the data so we can share with you what people told us.

Having a better picture about the freshwater places people use will help us better prioritise where and how to focus our freshwater efforts.
