Run in partnership with Pinetrees Lodge and the Lord Howe Island Board, this scientific expedition is an opportunity for 20 readers to enjoy bushwalks and nature experiences, while also helping scientists from the CSIRO to survey for endemic insects that may be unknown or close to extinction.

Many species remain undescribed or unrecorded, so the expedition stands to make a significant contribution to conservation. Opportunities for coral and bird surveys will be available and evening lectures provided. A proportion of the fees will go towards supporting the important work of the AGS and the CSIRO scientists.
