Native Forest Action Council
An unrelated environmental group called Native Forest Action formed at a later date.


Native Forest Action Council was an environmental organisation in New Zealand.

It was formed in 1975 from what was the Beech Forest Action Committee to advocate for the protection of native forests and changed its name to the Maruia Society in 1988. The Maruia Society then became Ecologic Foundation with Guy Salmon as its director.
