Coastguard volunteer giving oxygen to survivor - Coastguard Team Rescue

We can't save lives at sea without your help.

As someone who cares about saving lives at sea, you can help our extraordinary volunteers by making a monthly donation. Without your help, our volunteers will face stormy seas alone. But with your support, they'll have what they need to rescue complete strangers and save their lives.

We're a volunteer charity, and your monthly donation will help where it's most needed, by providing medical gear, protective clothing and search and rescue training for our volunteers.

You'll be doing something amazing and helping Coastguard volunteers all over New Zealand.
