Common Palm Civet
The common palm civet is Least Concern because of a wide distribution, large population, broad range, and resistances to threats.
The common palm civet is listed as Least Concern by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species because it has a wide distribution, large populations, uses a broad range of habitats and is tolerant of extensive habitat degradation and change, and is evidently resilient to ‘background’ hunting levels. These attributes mean that it is unlikely to be declining at the rate required to qualify for listing even as Near Threatened.
With a recent upsurge in off-take over a significant part of its range, this categorisation warrants review when better data on the effects of this off-take become available.
