Could You Spot—and Survive—a Rip Current?

70% of Australian beachgoers could not id rip currents, but each year they kill, on average, more lives in Australia than bushfires, floods, cyclones and sharks combined. 

The global drowning prevention community is out to spread the word on identifying and escaping deadly #ripcurrents with a public awareness campaign today. Check out a documentary and study guide focused on rip current science and survival strategies from National Geographic and Australia’s Rob Brander, a global expert in the field from UNSW Sydney.
