Range Description

Treron sanctithomae is endemic to the island of So Tom, So Tom e Prncipe (and formerly also nearby Ilhu das Rolas). It was formerly abundant and remains common at some fruiting trees in forests and less well-visited plantation areas, but is now nearly absent from the most populated northeast of the island (R. F. de Lima in litt. 2011), with apparently reduced numbers at areas such as Lagoa Amelia and Monte Carmo, and hunters reporting capture rates less than half of those five years previously (F. Olmos in litt. 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011; M. Carvalho in litt. 2009, 2011).
