Lord Howe Island is a small island in the Pacific Ocean 600 kilometers east from Australia. It is a distinct terrestrial eco-region, known as the Lord Howe Island subtropical forests, where many endemic species of animals, especially birds, used to live. Since the humans arrived to the island in 1788, more than half of the originally recorded bird species and subspecies are extinct. Either due to reckless hunting or due to illnesses and predators brought to the island by the first “colonists”. Nowadays, the island’s 350 residents are trying to keep it as clean as possible, the worst threats being oil and chemical sea and air pollution.
