Conservation Status

Not globally threatened (Least Concern). Despite its very wide range (estimated at 4,950,000 km2), predicted levels of climate change could have a near-catastrophic effect on this species’ habitat and range (86). Fairly common to common in much of the eastern part of the range (56, 54 , 87) and the Guianan Shield (88, 89, 81, 90, 28, 91, 92, 93); generally less common and more local in the west, for example being rather rare and poorly known in Panama (5, 50) and rather local in Costa Rica (49). Isolated subspecies cephaleucos in coastal eastern Brazil could potentially be threatened by habitat loss; in this region, protected populations occur in Sooretama Biological Reserve, Espírito Santo (94) and Poço das Antas Biological Reserve, Rio de Janeiro (74). White-crowned Manakin is also known from many other protected areas throughout its range. Elsewhere in Brazil, examples include Cabo Orange and Montanhas do Tumucumaque National Parks, Amapá (92, 95), Jaú National Park (58) and the Reserva Ducke, both in Amazonas (2), FLONA de Tapajós (96), Tapajós (Amazonia) National Park (97) and the Carajás mosaic of protected areas (98), all in Pará. Elsewhere, White-crowned Manakin is known from protected areas such as Braulio Carillo National Park (62) and El Copal Biological Reserve, both in Costa Rica (99), Yasuní Biosphere Reserve, Ecuador (82) and the following ProAves-owned reserves in Colombia: El Pangan, Arrierito Antioqueña and Ranita Dorada (100).
