Worldwide Species Action Plans
White-necked Picathartes (Picathartes gymnocephalus) is Vulnerable (BirdLife International, 2004) and listed in Appendix 1 of CITES. Current distribution is highly fragmented and most known breeding colonies are small, isolated and close to the minimum for long-term viability (Thompson, 1997). The apparent continued decline in the species? population throughout its entire range necessitates special attention, particularly at regional level, for appropriate intervention. This Action Plan provides a generalized framework to promote the conservation of the species through regional collaboration.
