Abstract ―​

This study aims to classify, determine IUCN conservation status and species diversity (H’), and create localized learning material of reptiles in Aliwagwag Protected Landscape (APL), Cateel, Davao Oriental: four families, 12 genera, and 13 species of reptiles observed in the study area. The IUCN status of all specimens was Least Concern, meaning that APL reptilians were still widely distributed and plentiful in the wild. Furthermore, the H’ (2.521) and evenness (0.983) indicate that the reptilian species was moderately diverse and evenly distributed in the study area. The study output was a booklet about the local reptile species in APL. The booklet can help students learn and contribute to the conservation of local species.
