THE PERTH CANYON
A little known pristine eco hot spot with gargantuan dimensions larger than the Grand Canyon with origins dating back to the entrance of the Swan River in Perth, Western Australia.
Research teams have monitored Blue Whales and Sperm Whales along with many other cetaceans and mega fauna that come here to feed on krill created by the Leeuwin Undercurrent and the Perth Canyon topography.
This interaction creates nutrient rich up welling waters where phytoplankton develops and an intense food chain for marine life propsers.
— “It’s the major feature on the West Australian coastline and stands unrivalled in terms of marine life and productivity.” Professor Pattiaratchi - University of WA
