P. brongersmai is threatened throughout much of its range by increased aridity, water pollution and drainage of some of its breeding habitats (Salvador et al. 2006). The increasing aridity is a regional trend enduring for over 2000 years, with clear evidence of a wetter and more verdant era in Roman times. The most severe impacts are in coastal areas where expansion of the indigenous population is placing pressure on over-exploitation of surface water resources.
