This species is listed as Critically Endangered inferred from a serious reduction (>80%) in the forested habitat available over the past 3 generations (48 years). Populations remain in less than 10 protected areas (PN Cerros de Amotape, RN de Tumbes, RE Cotacachi-Cayapas, R. Manglares Churute, R. Mache Chindul, PN Machalilla and small private reserves in the northern western slopes of the Andes) across its range.
Where the species persists it is persecuted as a crop pest by farmers. In other areas they are hunted for bushmeat and for the pet trade.
