From IUCN Red List:
The White-bellied Parrot is listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List and was last assessed in 2014 by BirdLife International. Based on a model of deforestation in the Amazon basin, and the potential susceptibility of this newly split species to hunting, it is suspected that its population will decline very rapidly over three generations from 2002, and it is therefore listed as Endangered.
