Stephen King is a New Zealand conservationist.

He is well known for his tree top protest in what is now the Pureora Forest Park in order to halt native forest logging during campaigning in the 1970s and 1980s. King also is involved in the protection of kauri trees in the Waipoua Forest.

King is one of the patrons of the New Zealand Trust for Conservation Volunteers [1] and is one of the founding trustees of the Waipoua Forest Trust.

Stephen King was sentenced to four months community detention in 2010 for possession of objectionable images, including child pornography.[2]
