In 1984 a successful campaign was undertaken by the Whirinaki Forest Promotion Trust to stop the logging of the Whirinaki Forest by a state organisation - The New Zealand Forest Service. The action subsequently led to the cessation of all native forest logging on public land in New Zealand. It also led to the demise of The New Zealand Forest Service and in its place, the new organisation: The Department of Conservation was established. Ian Macdonald took most of the photographs for the campaign as he did for other conservation groups at the time. This is a set of photographs from the publication: To Save a Forest: Whirinaki.
