UWA releases new deep sea footage for World Oceans Day

The Perth Canyon is the ancient bed of the Swan River that now flows through Perth City, Western Australia. The Canyon is larger than the Grand Canyon and is one of only two known feeding sites in Australia for the Blue Whale.
Today, on World Oceans Day, the University of Western Australia released never before seen baited camera footage from deep in the trench.
The footage will be on all local TV stations tonight.
The release was marked by a visit to the UWA Oceans Institute by an MP from all major parties – Liberal Mal Washer, Labors Melissa Parke and Greens Rachel Siewert.
