Justification
Anolis ahli is listed as Endangered because its estimated extent of occurrence approximates to around 600 km2, there is a continuing decline in the extent and quality of its habitat, and given the wide-spread nature of the threat of deforestation and the fact that known museum localities are very close to each other, it is likely that all individuals are found in five or fewer locations. The establishment and management of new protected areas are needed to ensure this species' survival. Further research and monitoring of Anolis ahli is required to ensure a decline in abundance triggers a more severe threat category.
