Earth Assist Environmental conservation activities for school students in WA


Rio Tinto Earth Assist is a fully funded FREE program for schools, designed to get students out into the environment and onto real conservation projects. Rio Tinto Earth Assist is run by Conservation Volunteers with the support of the Rio Tinto Community Investment Fund. The program is a partnership with the Department of Parks & Wildlife and the Department of Education.

The program facilitates activities for primary and high school students, through the following programs:

– Community Service Program (Primary & Secondary Schools): students are taken to a particular site of conservation and/or cultural significance. Students can complete various activities to the betterment of their community and the environment;

– Living Classroom Program (Primary Schools): students participate in incursions and take part in the development of living classrooms (such as worm farms, frog ponds and veggie patches), or other conservation-based projects within their school grounds;

– School Holiday Program (Secondary School Students) – this is an extension of our Community Service Program, open for students 15 years or older and available during all school holiday breaks;


Useful Information

For all activities, students must wear enclosed shoes, long trousers, long sleeved shirt, broad brimmed hat.
