Conservation Status

Nuthatch-Vanga is very widespread and is fairly common to common; it is not globally threatened, and its IUCN conservation status is assessed as Least Concern. It is a restricted range species: present in East Malagasy Wet Forests EBA. The area of its distribution is estimated by BirdLife International to be 292,000 km2. It is more common in the northern portion of its range, less common farther south (but there are no quantitative data on abundance or density from anywhere in its range). It is present in several protected areas throughout its, e.g. Marojejy, Mantadia and Masoala National Parks, the Perinet-Analamazaotra Special Reserve, and the Réserves Naturelle Intégrale d'Andringitra and Andohahela, among others. This specie is largely dependent on intact forest, however.
