Conservation and Management
The two subspecies groups have been considered separate species by BirdLife International and have been evaluated separately; both are rated Least Concern and are considered not globally threatened despite being generally uncommon (see BirdLife factsheets for Northern Rufous Paradise-Flycatcher and Southern Rufous Paradise-Flycatcher).
Effects of Human Activity
Habitat Loss and Degradation
As early as 1959, T. c. unirufa was suspected to have disappeared from Cebu due to deforestation (57), and it seems to have disappeared from Negros Island sometime after 1991, probably also due to widespread loss of lowland forest habitats (59, 31). Conversely, the conversion of most forest to other habitat types on the Talaud Islands does not seem to have had a negative impact on any Rufous Paradise-Flycatcher populations (77).
