Wildlife on Lord Howe Island

Wildlife

While more than five hundred species of fish navigate the ninety species of coral in the surrounding waters, the island itself is home to more than a hundred and thirty species of birds, both native and migratory.

It is, for instance, the only place in the world at which avid and casual birdwatchers alike can find the Woodhen. Because of the isolated and pristine nature of the island’s ecosystems, it is the only known location of the appropriated named Lord Howe Island stick insect.

The forests are virtually untouched, and natural attractions on the island include the variety of upper mantle and oceanic basalts, the world’s southernmost barrier coral reef, and a rich historical and cultural heritage.

Lord Howe Island rewards bird watchers and eco-enthusiasts with never ending, awe-inspiring discoveries.
