Last week, eleven of our most dedicated supporters travelled to the World Heritage-listed Lord Howe Island on a fundraising trip for the Climate Council!

From the white sand beaches of North Bay to the challenging Mount Gower summit hike, our fundraising team traversed this incredible natural wonderland, experiencing its exquisite flora and fauna.

Under the guidance of the Climate Council’s Professor Lesley Hughes and renowned naturalist Ian Hutton OAM, our trekkers learnt firsthand about the incredible history and importance of Lord Howe Island’s unique ecosystem, and how climate change threatens its existence.

Our Lord Howe Island Challengers put in an absolutely incredible fundraising effort – raising over $43,000 for the Climate Council!

We wouldn’t exist without community support – and we’d like to sincerely thank everyone who participated in the Lord Howe Island trip, as well as their friends, families, colleagues and community members who donated so generously to the cause.

Your donations are powering the work of the Climate Council, and will go towards many critical projects to be carried out this year, including producing scientific reports, hosting events in the community and getting even more climate change stories into the media.

P.S. It’s not too late to support the trip either – head over here to donate now.
