Listed as Near Threatened as much of the range of this subspecies remains forested and it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to be considered threatened at this time. Trade is less of a problem for this subspecies, yet habitat conversion will be an increasing consideration in the future. Populations of this subspecies are in the stronghold for the species. Because forest loss continues it could in the future reach a level of population decline significant to qualify for Vulnerable under criterion A2cd.
