Justification of Red List category
Despite several decades of intensive conservation work, which resulted in a population increase, large lightning-induced fires have since caused significant further declines in population size and habitat quality, from which any recovery is likely to be slow. These declines, additional unexplained smaller-scale declines infer a continuing decline in habitat quality and number of mature individuals, and as it also has a very small range and is restricted to just five locations, it has been uplisted to Endangered.

Population size: 1000-1500

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 6,800 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - Australia
Realm - Oceanic
IUCN Ecosystem -- Freshwater biome
