For immediate release

Lucky Scouts Get To Meet Bear

Three lucky Scouts are about to go face to face with a bear, but not the man-eating sort. They are part of the latest Air New Zealand in-flight safety video alongside the famous outdoor adventurer, Bear Grylls.

"This has to be the ultimate adventure experience," says SCOUTS New Zealand Chief Executive Niamh Lawless.

"Besides being one of the world's great adventurers with TV hits such as 'Man Vs. Wild', Bear Grylls is also Chief Scout in the UK," she says.

"It's all for a good cause too. Air New Zealand with a series of imaginative videos has made safety fun, getting across the message in an amusing manner. Scouting is all about fun and adventure, but it is also about doing it as safely as possible.

"Bear Grylls is the ultimate 'cool Scout'. He's bold, imaginative and adventurous - a great hero for youth, particularly those interested in the outdoors and the adventures that young Scouts crave. We all have that sense of adventure in us and Grylls's larger than life image is very engaging for young and old. It's great for these Scouts to meet him and work together on such a uniquely exciting project.

"The whole Scouting movement in New Zealand will be sharing the excitement of this event. SCOUTS New Zealand is all about young people testing and pushing themselves to try new and exciting things in a safe and supervised environment. The opportunity to be a part of the filming of the Air New Zealand safety video, which has a great focus on adventure, safety and conservation, is a perfect parallel to much of what we do every day in the Scouting movement."

Air New Zealand passengers can keep an eye out for the Bear Essentials of Safety video showing in-flight from Wednesday 27 February and will be available to view on You Tube at www.youtube.com/airnewzealand
