Swan River Dolphin Watch

Episode:  10
Broadcast Date: 12/04/14
Presenter: Trevor Cochrane

If there were one thing that defines Perth as one of the world’s most beautiful city’s it has to be the mighty swan and canning river systems that divide the city north and south. The Swan River which admittedly has suffered at times as our population has boomed remains healthy and rich in life from tiny prawns on the bottom to majestic dolphins moving up and down the system.

Dolphin Watch

  • Swan River Trust’s Dolphin Watch project was launched in April 2009. It focuses on one of the rivers most iconic species; Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins.
  • The research from the project builds on previous research conducted in 2002 and 2003. It works with the Trust’s River Guardians program to monitor the movement and behavior of the dolphins.
  • 2014 will see the launch of the Junior Dolphin Watch program for schools. Get in touch with the Swan River Trust for more information.
  • You can get involved to! To become a dolphin watcher sign up as a River Guardians member and you will be notified of the next Dolphin Watch training session.
