Protect Swan River dolphins

The Swan-Canning riverpark is home to a pod of 19 bottlenose dolphins which, as at September 2018, included nine adult females; seven adult males; seven juveniles and five calves.

The dolphins live in a precarious environment. They are vulnerable to the impacts of decreasing water quality through rubbish pollution and chemical run-off from agriculture. The pod is particularly at risk of entanglement in fishing nets, and injury from boats and other human recreational activity.
