Cineraria anampoza has a restricted range in Madagascar, where it only occurs in an estimated nine locations. Four subpopulations grow within a protected area and are experiencing a continuing decline in extent and quality, because of habitat degradation and destruction due to agriculture, wildfire and urban development. We project that the ongoing loss of its habitat will induce a continuous decline in the number of subpopulations and mature individuals in the next ten years. The plant is classified as 'Vulnerable' in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species(2017)[
