The mangrove forest along the Sabang River in Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines is composed of 47.55 ha of century-old mangrove trees that have served as a habitat to its diverse flora and fauna. It has been a breeding site to different species of plants, fish, mammals, reptiles, birds, and other endangered wildlife. The mangroves are part of the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park (PPSRNP) which has been declared as a Protected Area (PA) by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). It is considered one of the most important biodiversity conservation areas in the Philippines. As part of the local efforts to preserve the pristine condition of this ecosystem, mangrove seedlings have been grown approximately 150 meters from the beach, which will later on be transplanted into the deeper mangrove forest.
