Mangrove rehabilitation is one of the conservation strategies to protect bird species, reduce the impacts of climate change, increase marine productivity and improve eco-tourism management in Misamis Oriental. This study aimed to correlate the diversity of planted mangrove trees and avifauna species in Laguindingan, Misamis Oriental. The study used a descriptive-evaluative research with the use of point-centred quadrat method (PCQM), and line transect and mist netting technique in determining diversity of mangrove and birds species. Result showed that the planted mangroves provide habitat for eight (8) avifauna species namely; Eurasian Tree Sparrow, Pied Fantail, Brown Shrike, Grey Streaked Flycatcher, Spotted Imperial Pigeon, White-Collared Kingfisher, Little Egret and Golden Bellied Fly-eater which belong to four (4) Orders and eight (8) Families. Among the avifauna, Brown Shrike has the highest relative abundance with 19.45% while Golden Bellied Fly-Eater has the lowest relative abundance at 5.01%. The vegetation of the area is composed of two (2) different mangrove species, namely: Rhizophora apiculata and Rhizophora mucronata which has equal percentage in terms of its relative abundance (50%). Avifauna species has a strong diversity correlation with the mangrove species diversity. Moreover, the planted mangroves is habitable for avian species however is highly vulnerable to anthropogenic activities that can threaten the diversity of both avian and mangrove species.
