Description Mount Hamiguitan Range Wildlife Sanctuary (MHRWS) is a home to many endemic, rare and threatened species of flora and fauna making it a UNESCO and ASEAN biodiversity heritage site. Out of the roughly 600 species of fauna from all taxa surveyed in Mt. Hamiguitan, 35 species belonging to 25 families and 5 classes were identified as threatened. Pithecophaga jefferyi Ogilvie-Grant, 1897 (Accipitridae) and Cacatua haematuropygia (Müller, 1776) (Cacatuidae) are Critically Endangered while Gorsachius goisagi (Temminck, 1836) (Ardeidae), Penelopides panini (Boddaert, 1783) (Bucerotidae), and Risiocnemis antoniea Gassman & Hamalainen, 2002 (Platycnemididae) are Endangered species. Twenty-four species belonging to 5 classes are Vulnerable. Class Aves has the greatest number of threatened species (14 spp.) followed by class Insecta with 11 species. Researchers, stakeholders, and policy makers should give high priority in doing research and conservation activities for the threatened species in MHRWS.Keywords: conservation, MHRWS, threatened species, IUCN, philippines.
