New Zealanders take a lot of pride in their wild places and we try to keep them as clean and tidy as possible, you can help with that too. We love people exploring the outdoors, to ensure the future generations get the same experience as us - it pays to leave no trace of you being there.
What we encourage
Take your rubbish out with you, don’t leave it in huts or in the bush for others.
Take a spare plastic bag with you and pick up rubbish you find along the way. Every bit helps.
MSC encourage exploration and adventure in the incredible wilderness regions of New Zealand. We encourage you to participate, get out there and see what all the fuss is about. New Zealand is on the bucket list of so many people around the world for good reason.
We also encourage safe practices that ensure you make it home to your family and friends. We want you to make it home with adventurous stories, memories and photos. But, most of all we want you to make it home to do it all again next time. That's why on every advertisement, press release, video and resource we reaffirm our intent to help the 1.2 Million+ participants in outdoor recreation to make it home. You can help us spread this philosophy by sharing our resources and following the outdoor safety code so you make it home.– Mike Daisley, CEO
