Lord Howe Island Conservation

Protecting Paradise

Lord Howe Island is one of the most unique and beautiful places in the world, made up of 75% protected park preserve. The LHI Conservation Volunteers program is provided by the Lord Howe Island Board, LHI Museum, Marine Parks and the Lord Howe Island Tourism Association in conjunction with local businesses.

It launched in 2018 and gives visitors an opportunity to participate in the award winning, island-wide conservation effort ‘Protecting Paradise’. The program allows volunteers to make a valuable contribution to conservation projects on Lord Howe Island throughout May – September, giving a better understanding of what it takes to protect Lord Howe Island’s unique biodiversity while showcasing world class conservation in action.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the programme is currently on hold. Further detail will be provided once the programme is running again. Previous projects have included:

  • Bird Conservation
  • Marine Conservation
  • Plant Conservation
  • Invertebrate Conservation
