The ‘Swim and Survive on the Swan’ project is working in the Western Australian community to promote safe aquatic recreation on the Swan River. The project targets all recreational users of the Swan River, in particular; Children; Youth; Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) communities; Sea Scout and marine education groups.

Swim and Survive on the Swan is an important part of the Royal Life Saving Respect the River campaign, which is being implemented with the support of the Federal Government across the nation’s top 10 river drowning black spots.

A Drowning Prevention Action Plan is being implemented that includes river safety education programs, boating safety programs and public rescue services.

The project will also expand Swim and Survive and Bronze Medallion participation for targeted indigenous, CaLD, and low socio-economic communities.
