The Andean Motmot does not have an IUCN Red List conservation rating, as it still is classified by BirdLife International as conspecific with other members of the "Blue-crowned Motmot" complex (BirdLife International 2011).
The relative abundance of the Andean Motmot is assessed as "rare to locally uncommon" in Ecuador (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001a), and as "rare to uncommon" in Peru (Schulenberg et al. 2007).
Effects of human activity on populations
Human activity probably has little direct effect on the Andean Motmot, other than the local effects of habitat destruction.
