Justification of Red List category
This species has undergone rapid population declines in the past. Recent information suggest that these declines may have stopped by now, but in the absence of further evidence to show a stable population, the species is conservatively retained as declining. Thus, as the rate of decline does not meet the threshold for Vulnerable anymore, the species has been downlisted to Near Threatened.
