Daintree: World Heritage rainforest handed back to Aboriginal owners
The world's oldest tropical forest, The Daintree, located in Australia, has been handed back to its original Aboriginal owners. The Eastern Kuku Yalanji people will now manage the national park with Queensland's state government. Along with this forest, they have also been given other Queensland National Parks to help preserve. As these people still live in the forest, they are the perfect land keeps. This forest boarders the Great Barrier Reef, making it one of Australia's most visits sites. They hope to help maintain the forest's deep history as well as its beauty by letting the native people control its land.
