Red List Category
Based on a model of deforestation in the Amazon basin, and the species’s vulnerability to hunting, it is suspected that its population is declining extremely rapidly over three generations. The total remaining population is likely to be extremely small and may now be restricted to two disjunct subpopulations. For these reasons it has been classified as Critically Endangered.
