It is uniquely specialised to exist within barren arid and semi-arid environments and seems to be less mobile and nomadic than other small granivorous species inhabiting similar arid environments. This species is currently poorly represented within existing protected areas across its range and the current population status is not well known.
- Conduct a global assessment of the current status of this species across its range to better inform conservation measures undertaken.
- Develop a conservation network for this species incorporating the core sites that have remained most stable and could allow the species to persist.
- Implement stewardship initiatives to provide conservation protection for any core sites that are not situated within existing protected areas.
