Junior Dolphin Watch

In 2014 the Swan River Trust launched the Junior Dolphin Watch pilot project to engage students in citizen science and assist them in learning about dolphins living in the Swan Canning Riverpark and how to conserve them.

River Guardians called on interested educators to take part in the Junior Dolphin Watch pilot project. Each school involved in the project received a kit box of teacher resources on loan for the duration of the pilot. The kit box contained a variety of resources including Curriculum linked interactive and action based lesson plans.

The Dolphin Watch project was launched in April 2009 by the Swan River Trust to assist Murdoch and Curtin universities’ Coastal and Estuarine Dolphin Project (CEDP).
