The Western Mountain Reedbuck has been reduced to small, declining, remnant subpopulations within a relatively restricted range. Total numbers are estimated at 450 animals (so <250 mature individuals). As such, no subpopulation is larger than 250 mature individuals, but one or two may number >50, so this subspecies is very close to the threshold for Critically Endangered.
