The few small populations are threatened by alien forestry plantations and frequent fires. They are usually found basking on the boles of large trees or on rocky outcrops

ENDANGERED

 

Ø      Population size must have decreased by 70% or more over the last 10 years.

 

Ø      Extent of occurence less than 5000km² and the area of occupancy is less than 500km² and with a fragmented range or known only from five or less locations.

 

Ø      Population size is estimated at less than 2500 mature individuals and continuing decline is projected.

 

Ø      In addition there are fluctuations in numbers of individuals and sub-populations contain less than 1000 mature individuals.

 

Ø      Population size is estimated to be less than 250 mature individuals.

 

Ø      Quantitative analysis and modelling show the probability of extinction in the wild is at least 20% within 20 years.
