Babblers: Timaliidae - Conservation Status

species extinction habitat destruction

As of 2002, five species in the Philippines, India, Nigeria, Cameroon, and Vietnam are listed as Endangered, facing a very high risk of extinction, dying out, due to deforestation, or the cutting down of forests.

Twenty-two species are listed as Vulnerable, facing a high risk of extinction. Most of them are suffering from habitat destruction, and three have had their numbers seriously depleted by collectors.

Another thirty-nine species are classified as Near Threatened, in danger of becoming threatened with extinction. These birds are also suffering from habitat destruction in Sumatra, Borneo, the Malay Peninsula, and the Philippines.

Two species no longer exist, or are extinct. Astley's leiothrix was overtrapped by collectors, and the bearded reedling in southern Turkey died out because of the destruction of its wetland habitat.
