Population justification: The population is estimated to number 2,500-9,999 individuals in total, equating to 1,667-6,666 mature individuals, rounded here to 1,500-7,000 mature individuals.
Trend justification: A very rapid and on-going population decline is suspected owing to very high levels of hunting combined with the effects of habitat loss and degradation.
