Promoting the care of our natural resources, including flora and fauna, fish life and water quality is the motivation behind the development of an educational mobile application.

River Rush is an indigenous-focused and environmentally-charged game based on the Waikato River and its cultural significance to the people of Waikato-Tainui.

The story is based on Tama and Poppy who embark on a journey of the awa and complete a series of quests set by their Nanny Wai to help restore the health and well-being of the awa. Developed to provide a fun learning experience for our tamariki, the goal of River Rush is to share the Waikato-Tainui story of our tupuna awa with the world.
