    Status in the Wild / Distribution

    The Palm Lorikeets (Charmosyna palmarum) have a fluctuating range in the Santa Cruz islands of the Solomon Islands and in Vanuatu (an island nation located in the South Pacific Ocean). These lorikeets are often found in coconut trees or in flowering trees.

    This species is rare in some locations and is classified as Vulnerable as its numbers are suspected to be declining due to loss of habitat. They are listed as an endangered species (Cites II)
