Population justification: The population is estimated to number 250-999 mature individuals, based on surveys by Begazo (1996) and a subsequent small scale population recovery. This equates to 375-1,499 individuals in total, rounded here to 350-1,500 individuals.

Trend justification: Numbers of this species seem to have stabilised following a ban on trapping and trade.
