Listed as Critically Endangered as it was estimated a population decline by at least 80% over the past 10 years due to heavy hunting pressure and extensive habitat loss. In addition, this subspecies does not occur in any official protected areas. It has been relatively well studied and thus documentation is fairly recent and intensive (Whittaker 2006). However, there is need for further extensive research across the entire range.
2000 Endangered
