Population

It is relatively common in suitable habitats.

Population Trend

decreasing

Major Threats

Extremely severe habitat destruction due to charcoaling and small-scale agriculture is taking place on the north-western peninsula of Haiti, which now looks like a lunar landscape, devoid of vegetation, although some pockets remain where this species might occur.

Conservation Actions

It is not known to occur in any protected areas. There is an urgent need for effective protection of remaining suitable habitat in the range of this species.

Red List Status

Endangered (EN)

Rationale

Listed as Endangered because its Extent of Occurrence is less than 5,000 km2, its distribution is severely fragmented, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its habitat on Haiti.
