Abstract: Ninety-one mangrove-associated terrestrial vertebrate species, consisting of 20 herpeto-fauna, 63 birds and 8 mammals were documented along the coast of Puerto Princesa Bay in Palawan, Philippines. Sampling stations in barangays Iwahig and Sta. Lucia showed the higher species diversity and evenness distribution patterns than the more urbanized mangrove areas of barangays Sicsican, Irawan and Tiniguiban. Species were categorized on respective conservation status and from the total number of species documented, 15 were Palawan endemics, 20 migratory birds, and one invasive alien species. This study augments and updates information regarding the biodiversity of Puerto Princesa Bay in Palawan and highlights the value and vulnerability of mangrove forest and its unique wildlife. Further efforts to preserve and improve the number and quality of mangrove areas in Palawan to ensure the survival of its unique wildlife is highly suggested.
