Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

Australia Returns Large Rainforest to Aboriginal Owners

Daintree National Park, over 600 square-miles of rainforest, was returned to the Eastern Kuku Yalanji people who lived there for generations and are one of the world’s oldest living cultures. Click here for details, hopes, and beautiful photos.

Victory for Equal Property Rights in South Africa

The South African parliment recenlty passed a bill which reverses discrimination against black women seeking equal access to matrimonial property. Apartheid-era law giving the husband total property rights for black couples married before 1988 was declared unconstitutional in April. Read about the four women whose cases led to the bill and its significance in the Good News Network.

US Monument Protection Restored

In the US, the Biden administration has restored protection for The Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments as well as a marine conservation area off the New England coast. Here’s more from PBS News.

Sheep Rescue Video

I detest barbed wire, and I’m still a little concerned for this sheep, but I keep watching this happy ending video over and over again. Maybe it’s the pleasant scenery… at the end of the video.
