Range Description

Columba malherbii is endemic to the islands of Prncipe, So Tom (So Tom e Prncipe), and Annobn (Equatorial Guinea). The population size has not been estimated, but it remains widespread and reasonably common; however anecdotal evidence suggests it is becoming harder to find near populated areas and may be declining moderately rapidly owing to hunting pressure and capture as a cage bird.
