From IUCN Red List:
The Vinaceous Parrot is listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List and was last assessed in 2013 by BirdLife International. This species is classified as Endangered because recent population estimates from Brazil indicate that the global population is very small, and has suffered a rapid decline owing to extensive habitat loss and fragmentation, compounded by trade, and rapid declines are projected to continue. Further clarification is needed as to whether any Brazilian subpopulations exceed 250 individuals.
