Truth is they only have accurate figures on the negative outcomes. They wouldn't know how many actually visit.
We're just not doing our share when it comes to population mitigation.

Police and Land Search and Rescue (LandSAR) from the central North Island continued the search for a missing 53-year-old man on Mount Tongariro this morning.
Four men set out at 8am yesterday to hike over the Tongariro Alpine Crossing from Ketetahi to Mangatepopo.
The group stayed together until the bush edge below Ketetahi Hut, where three of the men continued without the missing man.
Police were notified the man was missing by his wife when he did not return to his vehicle around 5pm.
The search continued until after midnight in blizzard conditions without success and reconvened at 7am this morning with four teams and helicopter assistance.
Conditions have improved today.

In what Pizova would later say was "one of the big mistakes", they decided not to notify anyone as they wanted to avoid paying for the use of huts on the track.
