This species' abundance depends heavily on rainfall levels and water management. When the year is dry, the population declines, and when it is wet the species thrives. A European Union (EU) Life project has helped to ensure the future survival of this species but it still remains vulnerable due to its restricted range. More details can be found on the EU Life project website.
