Introduction Background of the Study ZSCMTS Bird Sanctuary is one of the trademarks of the Zamboanga State College of Marine Sciences and Technology, located at the heart of Zamboanga. It is occupied by different types and species of birds and mangroves. The environment was the main reason for these birds to occupy the land. It was evident that the area has a rich environment, comprises of enough land area, trees or mangroves and water which is rich in different species of fishes. Good for the piscivore aquatic birds. This little ecosystem made by the interaction of several different species is amazing and evident . Objective of the Study This study aimed to determine the following: 1. Water-quality a. Water salinity b. pH level c. Water depth d. Water transparency 2. Mangrove a. Abundance Density b. Density Statement of the Problem Generally, this study aimed to determine the Bird Sanctuary Profile. It aimed to answer the following specific questions: 1. What was the water-quality in terms of the following: a. Water salinity b. pH level c. Water depth d. Water transparency 2. Mangrove assessment in terms of the following: 1
a. Abundance b. Density 3. What was the ZSCMST Bird Sanctuary Profile in terms of the following: a. Water-quality b. Mangroves assessment Scope and Delimitation This study focused only the water salinity, transparency, pH level, water-depth and varieties, dominance and density of mangrove species. It was delimited to mature mangrove species within one-ninety (190) meters by one (1) meter from the baseline, water-quality determination, the entire area was divided into three smaller areas, and mangrove assessment, the 190 m length by 1 m away from the baseline was divided into smaller transect(10m). Significance of the Study The findings of the study are beneficial to the teachers and students, BSCAO, forestry, fishery and researchers.
