Fight for the Forest

Monday 22nd October 2018

Paul Bensemann has recorded a largely untold but significant and inspiring history; one that reminds us that change for good is always possible.

Based on interviews with key players, Fight for the Forests documents the public campaigns to save our native forests. Beginning in the 1960s with the battle to save Lake Manapouri, Bensemann also covers the campaigns that lead to the creation of several National Parks and established South Westland as a World Heritage Area. Chaired by Debs Martin.
