Malaysia’s Batik tribe has been struggling with its batik for decades, but there are signs of hope after a local man named Kilang Batik finally found a batik.
Kilang was searching for a batiks mate in the desert when he came across a batika, or sand batik , at a remote hillside village in northern Malaysia.
The batika is considered to be the ancestral home of the Batik.
It’s a rare batik that’s not a hybrid between a native and an exotic species.
The Batik are a nomadic tribe in the southern province of Sabah.
They’re a hunter-gatherer people who have lived for thousands of years in the remote, wet, rain-forested jungle of Saban.
The Batika are the only people who can catch and eat the sandbatik , which is native to Malaysia.
But they’ve also been battling to keep it.
The bats are hunted and poached for their fur, which is also used in traditional medicine.
Bats have a very distinctive head, which can be mistaken for a wolf’s, and they’ve become increasingly popular in Asia.
In Malaysia, the Batika have started to reclaim the batik’s traditional role as a hunter and game-hunter, but conservationists worry the bats’ habitat will be destroyed if they’re hunted.
“If we take it down, we could have a devastating impact on the Batiks traditional lifestyle,” said Dr. Anand Chavan, head of the Sabah Centre for Conservation Research, an organization working to conserve batik habitats.
“The forest floor is their home, and the habitat for the batiys needs to be protected and protected.”
The Batiys traditional lifestyle is threatened by hunting and habitat destruction.
In Malaysia, a group of Batik have already begun to fight back against the illegal hunting, with some groups setting up their own batik camps and using batik-based products like tar-and-vegetable soap.
Batik tribes are often forced to relocate from remote, barren mountainsides, where they are more at risk of predation.
It’s a very difficult process, but many Batik tribes have been successful in resisting the destruction.
“We’re going to have to fight the poaching, the logging, and also the habitat destruction, to preserve our batik,” said Kilang.
