Swan Canning River Protection Strategy coverVision: A healthy river for all, forever

The Swan Canning Riverpark is renowned for its natural beauty and cultural and recreational significance. The Swan Canning River Protection Strategy is a Western Australian Government initiative to provide a master plan to guide investment, keep the rivers healthy and ensure they are accessible for the community to enjoy.

The strategy is a Western Australian Government initiative that establishes coordinated management arrangements to protect and enhance the ecological and community benefits of the Riverpark. It is a long-term commitment to recognise and protect the Swan and Canning rivers, providing a collaborative management approach by outlining agreed actions between the community, industry, government and non government organisations.

The Strategy is a requirement of the Swan and Canning Rivers Management Act 2006.

The Trust is responsible for the development of and reporting about the Strategy to the Minister for Environment.

The Trust is supported in its work by the Department of Parks and Wildlife which has operational and management responsibilities within the Riverpark and Development Control Area.

Parks and Wildlife has a key role in implementing the Swan Canning River Protection Strategy, and will help co-ordinate the relevant management actions and reporting on the Strategy from 12 partner organisations.
