There are currently no major threats to the species' habitat although there are plans to build a road across the Serrania de los Paraguas. This will become a major threat if the plans go ahead, and would provide access for the expansion of agricultural activities and logging.

Management

Conservation Actions

Conservation Actions
Most of the range of this species is within the mountains of Los Paraguas, which forms a natural unit of the high Andean ecosystem. At present there is an ongoing effort to transform this area into a wildlife reserve. Other populations are inside Parque Nacional Natural Farallones de Cali. Conservation of the species' habitat is essential for its long-term survival since it is restricted to primary forest.
