Major Threat(s): The major threats to the habitat of this species include clearance of forest for agricultural fields, livestock grazing, and timber extraction (both illegal logging and firewood collection). All of these threats might increase following construction of National Highway 2, the proposed route of which runs near to this reserve (Tordoff 2002).
