Voice for the Wilderness, A

Synopsis
An emotive plea for the preservation of Australian forests, and particularly of the rain forests of the Hastings River area. Portrays the destruction of huge areas of forest in the past 200 years since the arrival of European immigrants. Contrasts the knowledge and understanding of the aborigine for rain forest plants and animals with the much more exploitive attitude of the new settlers.
