The Black-faced Lion Tamarin is Critically Endangered and lives in several fragmented small populations that are still subject to loss of suitable habitat. Despite being present in a half-dozen protected areas the estimated number of mature individuals is less than 250, the average number of mature individuals is less than 50, and populations are projected to continue declining due to ongoing loss of suitable habitat in the states of Sao Paulo and Parana.
