Population justification: The known global population has increased to 160 individuals thanks to ongoing conservation efforts, hence is placed in the band 50-249 mature individuals.
Trend justification: Current trends for this species are poorly known. It has evidently declined in the past but thanks to co-ordinated conservation efforts at the species's stronghold this decline has slowed and may have ceased. With this information in mind, an overall decline of 1-9% is estimated to have occurred over the last ten years.
