Lord Howe Island Biodiversity Management Plan

The rich biodiversity of the Lord Howe Island Group (LHIG) supports a high level of endemic and significant species and communities. In addition, due to its isolated geographic location, small size and limited access, there are a number of identifiable and common threats to biodiversity on the LHIG.

This combination of unique biota and common threats provides the opportunity to manage species and communities via a multispecies, threat-based biodiversity plan. This holistic approach was chosen in contrast to producing a number of single species recovery plans, which is less efficient in terms of resources for preparation, implementation and prioritisation of management actions.
