But now the Batek's traditional hunter-gatherer lifestyle is under severe threat from deforestation and development, and mainland Malaysia's last nomadic community may soon have no choice but to abandon their traditional life and settle down.

REPORTER - DEBORAH DAVIES  It's rare for Congo to hit the headlines but it did - briefly - last November. And just as quickly it was forgotten again as the world's attention turned to other global trouble spots. That's been the pattern of the last 12 years.

Over the course of three months, 11 rare Siberian tigers died in this now closed zoo in northeastern China. A manager at the zoo said the tigers died of various diseases, but local authorities and wildlife officials believe they died from malnutrition. The tigers were apparently fed cheap chicken bones as food and were kept in very small cages. China has only about 50 tigers left in the wild, but there are about 5,000 kept in captivity.

In California, a Native American tribe, the Winnemem Wintu, is struggling to hold a traditional coming of age ceremony, without threat of interruption by members of the public.
