I write this with two hats on - one hat (probably stating the obvious) is really a mask and the other hat is as a bureaucrat (and an overpaid one if believe what you read in the news).
The government agency Sport and Recreation New Zealand (SPARC) is currently consulting on a discussion document on outdoor recreation in New Zealand. The submissions will inform the development of a strategy for outdoor recreation in New Zealand.
Anyone with an interest in outdoor recreation should read this discussion document and consider making a submission (I know many of you have outdoor interests other than diving). You can make a submission as an individual or an organisation. Submissions close on Friday 29 August.
