Archived 2010-2011 topics: Kaempfer’s Woodpecker (Celeus obrieni): request for information on its population size
Kaempfer’s Woodpecker Celeus obrieni is currently listed as Critically Endangered under criterion C2a(ii), because it was suspected to have a population numbering fewer than 250 mature individuals, undergoing a continued decline owing to habitat loss and degradation, with at least 90% of mature individuals in one sub-population. The species’s scarcity within its range indicates that it exists at low densities, but its new EOO suggests that the species’s population is likely to number more than 250 mature individuals.
