Birds of the Lord Howe Island

€ 3.49 *

Lord Howe Island is located almost 600km east of mainland Australia in the Pacific Ocean. Together with 27 other islands, it forms a small archipelago. The highest point, Mount Gower at 875 m, is on the main island. Lord Howe Island is sufficiently isolated, to develop some endemic subspecies and even some endemic species. Of these, several became extinct after the emergence of humans. Since the late 20th century, notable successes have been achieved in eliminating introduced species (neobiota): wild boar, cats, goats and even rats and mice have been eradicated, allowing the populations of the surviving native species to recover. Today, only 400 tourists are allowed to visit the island every day - nevertheless tourism is the most important industry on Lord Howe Island.

Lord Howe Island is located in the Pacific Ocean. Legally Lord Howe Island belongs to Australia. Because of the number of bird species with restricted range occurring in this area, BirdLife International assigned it a Primary Endemic Bird Area (EBA-P).
