Justification of Red List category
The species is undergoing significant declines due to habitat degradation and hunting for food. The rate of deforestation is now accelerating, and given the additional impact of hunting, the overall rate of population reduction is thought to be faster than the rate of forest cover loss alone. As such, the population is suspected to be rapidly declining and the species is assessed as Vulnerable.

Population trend: decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 742,000 km2

Country endemic: no
