Discover Lord Howe Island with
world-renowned naturalist Ian Hutton

Observe and understand an ecological treasure

The World Heritage listed Lord Howe Island is a tiny oasis in the Tasman Sea, 700km northeast of Sydney. With 70% of the Island completely protected in a Permanent Park Preserve and a Marine Park surrounding the island, Lord Howe offers a unique opportunity to observe ecological diversity and abundance, so long lost to much of the planet.

No one is more qualified to help you explore and appreciate the flora, fauna, geology, history and conservation of this special place than world-renowned naturalist, Ian Hutton. Having lived and studied on the Island for over four decades and worked with universities, museums and filmmakers from around the world, Ian enjoys sharing his passion and knowledge with visitors to the Island.

There was quite a lot of interest in my last post. Here some more drone images of the coral with low tides. Our coral is in troubleā€¦ hottest summer, highest water temperature ever recorded, bleaching and now this stress of being exposed high and dry for hours; a wake up call for all on Climate Change #lordhoweisland #coralreef #coralbleaching #lagoon #lowtide #lordhoweislandmarinepark #worldheritage #dronephotography #coral #naturephotography
