Major Threat(s): It is present in most of the protected areas in the region and also many of the demarcated forest areas in the Transkei, which are ineffectively protected and under threat of losing their habitat through cutting for firewood and timber and increasing settlement. Agricultural activities upstream have also caused habitat loss through the siltation of rivers.
