The Ian Kiernan Environmental gallery interprets the World Heritage natural history of Lord Howe Island. One of the reasons for World Heritage Listing of the Island in 1982 was the biodiversity. This section on biodiversity is a major component of the Environmental displays and is titled From Coral Reef to Cloud Forest.
The Lord Howe Island Board contributed this funding through a grant from the Commonwealth Department of the Environment, to celebrate 25 years World Heritage of Lord Howe Island.
The display features designed photo/text panels, original art work by local artist and digital monitors screening videos and slide shows of the flora and fauna.
