This species has an extremely large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be increasing, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.

|Range Description:||Eupsittula pertinax is found in northern South America, its native range encompassing Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, the Netherlands Antilles, Guyana, French Guiana, Suriname and Brazil (del Hoyo et al. 1997). The subspecies griseipecta, endemic to Colombia's Sinú Valley, has not been recorded since 1949 and is likely to be extinct (T. Donegan in litt. 2011).|
