Version: 1.0 — Published October 5, 2010


The conservation status of the Golden-hooded Tanager is assessed by the ICUN as of Least Concern. The justification for this assignment is that the species has a "very large range" with little or no fluctuation in size. with a population that is large and appears stable (BirdLife International 2009).

Effects of human activity on populations

The effects of human activity on the Golden-hooded Tanager are little known. Because the population overall size is unknown, there is no way to known if the population is decreasing. However, the Golden-hooded Tanager primarily uses forest edges and is tolerant of habitat disturbance, and so is less sensitive to human activity.
