Conservation status

The monito del monte was once considered a common animal in parts of its range, but it is increasingly under pressure from habitat loss due to deforestation and development. The species' very restricted range means that even small losses can be significant. Having survived apparently little change for at least 20 million years, it would be a tragedy if the monito del monte was to become extinct as a result of human negligence—its loss would represent the demise of an entire order of animals. The species is listed as Vulnerable by the IUCN.
