STRESEMANN’S BRISTLEFRONT

CRITICALLY ENDANGERED

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Merulaxis stresemanni 
POPULATION: One known individual
IUCN STATUS: Critically Endangered 
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Humid lowland forest in northeastern Brazil.

One of the world’s rarest birds, the Stresemann’s Bristlefront appears to be literally one bird away from extinction. In December 2018, after months of intensive searching, a lone bristlefront was observed in Brazil. This rediscovery renews hope that this species can be saved.

Unfortunately, this Critically Endangered bird is confined to one of the most fragmented and degraded – and vulnerable – forests in the Americas.
