Justification of Red List category
This species is largely dependent on lowland evergreen forest within a region experiencing high rates of deforestation. Although it may be more tolerant of secondary habitats than some other hornbill species, it is likely to be declining moderately rapidly, and is therefore considered Near Threatened as it almost qualifies for a threatened listing under criteria A2c+3c+4c.
