Prionailurus viverrinus, the fishing cat, is one of the most important discoveries. It is a skilled swimmer with partially webbed front paws that it uses to catch rodents and fish.

Long-tailed macaques, large-spotted civets, hairy-nosed otters, smooth-coated otters, and several bat species are among the other noteworthy inhabitants. The survey also showed that mangroves are crucial for local subsistence and commercial fishing because they serve as essential breeding sites for fish like groupers and barracudas. In addition, the mangroves protect tsunamis.

Within the mangrove waterways, the survey discovered 150 bird species and 74 fish species, 15 of which were designated as near-threatened or endangered.
