Population justification: The population size is preliminarily estimated to fall into the band 2,500-9,999 mature individuals. This equates to 3,750-14,999 individuals in total, rounded here to 3,500-15,000 individuals.

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline owing to ongoing habitat destruction and unsustainable levels of hunting.
