“Kaempfer’s Woodpecker (also known as Piauí woodpecker) strongly associated with Gadua bamboo… can be found across a large portion of Brazil’s Cerrado (tropical savanna) region…
The woodpecker is included in the Alliance for Zero Extinction’s list of species facing imminent extinction without concerted conservation action. Kaempfer’s Woodpecker does not currently occur in any protected areas. In addition, no stronghold site—or concentration of the birds—has been identified, which puts it at even greater risk of extinction.”
