Population justification: The population was estimated to number 12,500-15,000 individuals in 1994, and has presumably declined since. It is now estimated at 10,000 individuals, roughly equating to 6,700 mature individuals.

Trend justification: A slow and on-going decline is suspected, owing to habitat loss and hunting pressure.
