The IUCN Red List conservation status of Green-and gold Tanager is rated as of Least Concern (BirdLife International 2009). Green-and-gold Tanager has a wide geographic distribution (estimated as 4,230,000 km2, and the global population is very large. Its relative abundance typically is assessed as uncommon in Colombia (Hilty and Brown 1985); as "uncommon to locally fairly common" in Ecuador (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001a); and as fairly common to common in Peru and Bolivia (Schulenberg et al. 2010, Herzog et al. 2016).

Effects of human activity on populations

Not reported, but as many other forest species, populations of Green-and-gold Tanager face several potential threats related to ongoing forest fragmentation and clearing.
