Annual Reports

Coastguard relies on the contribution of individuals, organisations and the New Zealand government.


We are enormously proud of what we achieve each year. Our volunteers prevent family tragedies and bring loved ones home safely, making our seas, lakes and rivers safer for all.

Our financial year ends on June 30.


Coastguard New Zealand 2019-2020 Annual Report

This year Coastguard has taken a vital first step in bringing our Annual Report to life online through creating our first ever full digital report. By focusing our attention on the digital version we have begun a journey of re-imagining our Annual Report and exploring how we can share our story with our internal and external stakeholders in a fresh, engaging and interactive way.
