Justification of Red List category
The species has suffered a very rapid, ongoing population decline due to trapping for trade compounded by habitat loss. Local extinctions have been observed across much of the range within the past 10-15 years concurrent with price increases and reduced availability in the market. For these reasons Black-and-white Laughingthrush is evaluated as Endangered.
