A group of 13 students from three different schools participated in the Rio Tinto Earth Assist school holiday program, managed by Conservation Volunteers Australia.
Students sign up as volunteers for a few days during the holidays to help with conservation efforts throughout the Perth Metro area.
The students helped remove invasive weeds on the dunes at South Trigg, alongside volunteers from Stirling Natural Environment Coastcare (SNEC). They then took a drive up to Waterman’s Bay, where Rae (SNEC Convener) spoke to the students about the history of the area and conservation programs along the coast. They finished the day with a beachcomb, collecting marine debris on behalf of the Tangaroa Blue Foundation.
