The population fluctuates between 20,000 and 40,000 animals. A census in 1978 suggested a population size of about 40,000, but a recent survey in 2001 ? found a 50% decline from this earlier estimate (Alava and Salazar 2006). Methodological differences might exist between counts over this period, but the marked decline suggested is cause for serious concern.
