The Batak tribe, a community of Indigenous Peoples in the northern part of Puerto Princesa City in Palawan, Philippines, is heavily dependent on harvesting honey from the mountain. It is the livelihood they learned from their forefathers and have continuously practiced for decades.

Not until Typhoon Rai (locally known as Odette) came in December 2021 and brought massive destruction to some areas in the province including their place in Sitio Kalakwasan in Tanabag village.

After over a year, the community has not yet found any honeybees that could produce the honey.

Now they ask, where have all the honeybees gone?
