Systems: Terrestrial

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The main threats include habitat loss due to slash-and-burn activities and for firewood collection and charcoal production.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: This species is listed on Appendix I of CITES. It is reported to occur in the Tsaratanana Nature Reserve and the Manongarivo Special Reserve, but these require strengthened protection. The corridor between Tsaratanana and Marojejy and Anjaharibe-Sud forest block should be maintained. Remaining forest in Ampasindava should be included in a Conservation Site. Additional surveys to the east of the range in existing forest blocks would be useful.
