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.
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.
