Total population numbers were estimated at c. 75,000 in 1999, with 25% in protected areas. This total included 50,000 in southern Sudan, which it was acknowledged may be a large underestimate. Indeed, aerial surveys carried out in southern Sudan in the dry season by WCS in 2007 indicate a population of 160,000 and a generally favourable conservation situation. The subspecies is provisionally listed as Least Concern, although with the caveat that anticipated results of a forthcoming wet season survey of southern Sudan may yield information of relevance for the listing of this subspecies.
