"To control our destiny as our elders before us; in caring for Wuthathi country, culture and community"
Native title is the recognition that Aboriginal people have rights and interest to their land and waters according to their traditional laws and customs.
On the 29/04/2015 the Federal Court of Australia made a determination recognising the native title rights of Wuthathi people of lands in the Shelburne Bay region from Captain Billy landing south to Temple Bay, including the Thingkamu Islands.
Wuthathi land extends 118,000 hectares and is made up of a third National Park and two-thirds of Aboriginal Freehold land.
Raine Island is an untouched wilderness on the northern Great Barrier Reef which is identified as the largest rookery in the world for the green turtle with upwards of 15,000 females having been recorded attempting to nest at the one time along the approximately 1.8km of beach.
