It is estimated that the population has declined by at least 20% during 2000-2011 and a subsequent range contraction has also been noted. As with other highland grassland species, primary threats facing this species include habitat loss, degradation and fragmentation through various anthropogenic activities.
- Conduct a global assessment of the current status of this species across its range to better inform conservation measures undertaken.
- Assess the rate of habitat loss for this species over recent times (1999 – 2017), as well as potential future loss through climate change.
- 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.
