Listed as Endangered as the taxon is estimated to have undergone a decline exceeding 50% over the course of three generations (ca. 27-30 years), mainly due to habitat loss and hunting. The absence of many large and well-managed protected areas means that the status of this subspecies is likely to continue to decline, particularly in the south of the range where hunting pressure is increasing.
