By the mid-20th century, it was almost
extinct, but it has since recovered to the point where it was not considered threatened anymore. Downlisted to Near Threatenedstatus by the IUCNin 2004 [BLI (2004)] , recent research shows that its numbers are decreasing again after a peak in the first years of the 21st century. It is consequently uplisted to Vulnerable status in 2008 [BLI (2008)] .
