Justification of Red List category
The species is no longer common at any site and has rapidly declined or disappeared from multiple areas across its highly restricted and fragmented range within the past 15 years, due to trapping for the cage-bird trade and the destruction of coastal forest habitat. For these reasons, Javan White-eye is classified as Endangered.
