You might have seen Malaysian Unity of Cultures’ (MUOC) cute tapir figurines at bazaars around town, but not since March this year when the movement control order (MCO) was enforced.

When Yew Souf set up MUOC, he envisioned it as a project that combines his love for the handmade creative arts and nature conservation. Every year, a portion from its sales is channelled to the Malayan Tapir Conservation Centre.
