Only 500 Batak remain in the dense jungle in the center of Palawan Island. Their distinctive system of beliefs holds that nature spirits protect the plants and animals of the forest and punish those who exploit the environment. Dr. Abati's team sees Batak hunters collect rattan, honey and resin. The Batak teach the team how to use resources from the forest while respecting the environment.
