Conservation Status

Currently, the global population is described as being stable and it does not approach the size threshold for classification as Vulnerable under the criterion of the IUCN (BirdLife International 2011). Therefore, the Beryl-spangled Tanager is classified as a species of Least Concern (BirdLife International 2011) relative to other avian species. Likewise, Parker et al. (1996) consider it a "low" conservation priority relative to other Neotropical birds.

Effects of human activity on populations

Parker et al. (1996) consider its sensitivity to disturbance to be 'medium' compared to other Neotropical birds.
