Justification of Red List category
Tree cover loss through conversion of forest to agriculture (particularly for oil palm plantations) is estimated at 14-18% over the past ten years, and with further impacts from degradation the the species is suspected to be undergoing a moderately rapid population reduction. The majority of the loss has taken place within the lowlands, within the preferred elevational range of the species. Overall, the population is suspected to have undergone a rapid recent reduction approaching 30% over ten years, hence is assessed as Near Threatened. This reduction will continue unless there is a significant reduction in both the rate of habitat conversion within the range of the species, or until the majority of the population becomes restricted to more secure protected areas.
