Justification of Red List category
This species is classified as Vulnerable because the known population of mature individuals is very small. However, intensive conservation action has stabilised its current range and resulted in an exceptional recovery and increase in the population size. If the number of mature individuals continues to increase the species may be downlisted further in the future.
