Conservation Status

Pompadour Cotinga has a very wide distribution; it is not globally threatened, and its IUCN conservation status is assessed as Least Concern. The species is most numerous north of the Amazon, from eastern Colombia east to the Guianas. It occurs in several protected areas, including Serranía de la Neblina National Park, in Venezuela (7), Iwokrama Forest Reserve, in Guyana (1), the Allpahuayo-Mishana Reserved Zone, in Peru (31), and Jaú National Park, in Brazil (33).

Effects of Human Activity

Although it is not listed as a species of concern by IUCN, the Pompadour Cotinga could lose 11.5–12.6% of its habitat over the next ten years based on deforestation modeling (46), and its population is expected to decline as a result.
