Populations meeting IBA criteria ('trigger species'):
Species Current IUCN Red List Category Season Year(s) Population estimate at site IBA criteria met
Hook-billed Hermit Glaucis dohrnii VU resident - present A1, A2
Golden-tailed Parrotlet Touit surdus VU resident - 30 individuals A1
Vinaceous-breasted Amazon Amazona vinacea EN unknown - 30 individuals A1
Red-browed Amazon Amazona rhodocorytha VU resident - present A1
Golden-capped Parakeet Aratinga auricapillus LC resident - 30 individuals A1
Band-tailed Antwren Myrmotherula urosticta VU resident - present A1, A2

Year of assessment (most recent) State (condition) Pressure (threat) Response (action)
2023 near favourable high medium
Was the whole site assessed? State assessed by Accuracy of information
yes habitat medium

State (condition of the trigger species' habitats)
Habitat Habitat detail Reference area (ha) Actual area (ha) Habitat quantity (% remaining) Habitat quality (carrying capacity) Result
Forest Tropical lowland evergreen forest 0 0 moderate (70-90%) good (> 90%) near favourable

Pressure (threats to the trigger species and/or their habitats)
Threat level 1 Threat level 2 Timing Scope Severity Result
Biological resource use hunting & collecting terrestrial animals - intentional use (species being assessed is the target) happening now small area/few individuals (<10%) slow but significant deterioration low
Biological resource use logging & wood harvesting - intentional use: subsistence/small scale happening now small area/few individuals (<10%) slow but significant deterioration low
Natural system modifications fire & fire suppression - trend unknown/unrecorded likely in short term (within 4 years) small area/few individuals (<10%) slow but significant deterioration low
Residential and commercial development housing and urban areas happening now some of area/population (10-49%) moderate to rapid deterioration high

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90%) covered by appropriate conservation designation A management plan exists but it is out of date or not comprehensive Substantive conservation measures are being implemented but these are not comprehensive and are limited by resources and capacity medium
