Habitat loss due to agricultural encroachment and infrastructure development for tourism are major threats.

Conservation Actions

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)


Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
