Ocellated Turkey

Ocellated Turkey

The ocellated turkey is Near Threatened as it has a small declining population due to hunting pressure and habitat loss.

The ocellated turkey is listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species because it has a moderately small population which is suspected to be in decline owing mainly to unsustainable levels of exploitation, hunting pressure, plus ongoing habitat loss, degradation and destruction.

Should this species be found to have a small population, it may qualify for a higher category.
