Justification of Red List category

This species is classified as Vulnerable because it has a very small range and population and is therefore susceptible to stochastic events and the impacts of human activities, such as the introduction of non-native predators. Intensive conservation efforts aim to improve its status, but these have resulted in only partial success with at least three of the four remaining translocated populations requiring intensive and on-going management and the fourth currently at an early stage of establishment with uncertainty about its long-term survival.

Population size: 3000

Population trend: Stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 22,300 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - oceanic island
Realm - Oceanic
IUCN Ecosystem -- Terrestrial biome
