Event description

Lord Howe Island with Ian Hutton

May 19th @ 1:00pm AEST

Lord Howe Island is just 11km long and 2km wide, a boomerang-shaped sliver of land 780km north-east of Sydney. The island hugs a turquoise lagoon rimmed with the world’s southernmost coral reef and was designated a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1982.

Along with spectacular volcanic geography, the island’s rare endemic fauna and native plant species are found nowhere else on Earth. Hundreds of thousands of sea birds breed on the island and over 500 species call the waters home.

Ian Hutton has worked with universities, botanic gardens and museums from around the world, contributing to numerous documentary films and research papers on Lord Howe Island’s unique ecology. He has played an important part in preserving Lord Howe Island’s ecosystem, spearheading eradication projects to rid the island of the feral weeds and rats that threatened the Island’s delicate balance.

He’s a gifted photographer and in 2006 he was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for services to conservation and tourism on Lord Howe Island.

There are several way to join:

  • Register for one of the limited camera spots and your students can interact directly with the speakers and ask their questions live.
  • If your students are not in the classroom and learning virtually, the educator can join in a camera spot and relay questions from their students as they tune in live.
  • You can also choose to tune in live via YouTube with your class and send in questions via the live chat. The events will record as well and be available to watch afterwards via a YouTube playlist.
  • All events will have live Kahoot! quizzes and your students can test their new learning while competing with students across the country.
