Abstract

Air Sugihan or Sugihan wetlands is a subdistrict in Ogan Komering Ilir district,South Sumatra province, Indonesia. The area covering is about 2.593 km², mostly dominated by wetlands, ranging from peatland to the mangrove zone. The Padang-Sugihan Wildlife Reserve is a Wildlife Sanctuary that borderly or within Air Sugihan wetlands. Before the area was set aside for a wetland reserve in April 1983 the area was being prepared for transmigrant settlers. Among other threatened wildlife, birds and fishes are two taxa that very fragile to human disturbances. Since November 2016, we explore basic biodiversity information of Sugihan wetlands, particularly focus on fish and bird diversity. A total of 33 species of fishes and 39 birds were recorded, suggest the wetlands in this area support important habitat of rich diversity. To collect information on bird diversity, three survey methods were applied (riverine survey, time point counts and incidental search). For collecting data of fishes, we collect specimens from local fishermen, with additional data collected by us using hand netting and fish trap netting. Long-term study was initiate to providing comprehensive biodiversity information to support sustainable development of Sugihan wetlands.
