Developed by the New Zealand Walking Access Commission, the free online service allows users to find publicly accessible land by overlaying access information on topographical and aerial maps. The association has marked the locations of all beaches with a surf life saving club, with links to its Find a Beach website for people who want to see more infor- mation, including photos and tidal, weather, fishing and surfing conditions at any given beach. It is an excellent tool for the public to use and every oppor- tunity for people to find a safe beach to swim at has the potential to save lives,'' Surf Life Saving New Zealand chief executive Paul Dalton says. Here we have a win-win out- come for ourselves and the pub- lic.'' Go to wams.org.nz for more information.
