Bosque Protector Alto Nangaritza


IBA Justification

The site was identified as important in 2008 because it was regularly supporting significant populations of the species listed below, meeting ('triggering') IBA criteria.

Populations meeting IBA criteria ('trigger species'):
Species Current IUCN Red List Category Season Year(s) Population estimate at site IBA criteria met
Ecuadorian Piedtail Phlogophilus hemileucurus LC resident 2003 present A1
Napo Sabrewing Campylopterus villaviscensio LC resident 2003 present A1
Coppery-chested Jacamar Galbula pastazae LC resident 2003 present A1
Spot-winged Parrotlet Touit stictopterus NT resident 2003 present A1
White-necked Parakeet Pyrrhura albipectus VU resident 2003 present A1
Fiery-throated Fruiteater Pipreola chlorolepidota LC resident 2003 present A1
Buff-throated Tody-tyrant Hemitriccus rufigularis LC resident 2003 present A1
Orange-throated Tanager Wetmorethraupis sterrhopteron VU resident 2003 present A1, A2

The current IUCN Red List category may differ from that which was valid at the time of IBA criteria assessment (2008).


IBA Conservation

IBA conservation assessment
Year of assessment (most recent) State (condition) Pressure (threat) Response (action)
2013 not assessed high low
Was the whole site assessed? State assessed by Accuracy of information
yes unset unknown

Pressure (threats to the trigger species and/or their habitats)
Threat level 1 Threat level 2 Timing Scope Severity Result
Agricultural expansion and intensification annual & perennial non-timber crops - small-holder farming happening now some of area/population (10-49%) very rapid to severe deterioration high
Agricultural expansion and intensification livestock farming and ranching (includes forest grazing) - small-holder grazing, ranching or farming happening now some of area/population (10-49%) moderate to rapid deterioration high
Biological resource use logging & wood harvesting - unintentional effects: subsistence/small scale happening now some of area/population (10-49%) slow but significant deterioration medium
Energy production and mining mining and quarrying likely in short term (within 4 years) some of area/population (10-49%) moderate to rapid deterioration medium
Transportation and service corridors roads and railroads happening now some of area/population (10-49%) slow but significant deterioration medium

Response (conservation actions taken for the trigger species and/or their habitats)
Protected-area designation Management planning Other conservation action Result
Whole area of site (>90%) covered by appropriate conservation designation No management planning has taken place Substantive conservation measures are being implemented but these are not comprehensive and are limited by resources and capacity low
