Population justification: The population size is preliminarily estimated to fall into the band 10,000-19,999 individuals. This equates to 6,667-13,333 mature individuals, rounded here to 6,000-15,000 mature individuals.

Trend justification: There are no new data on population trends, but the species is suspected to be declining rapidly, as a result of hunting, habitat loss and trapping.
