Cocos Island has been designated as a national park, but no substantive measures have been taken to reduce populations of introduced mammals (F. G. Stiles in litt. 1999).Conservation Actions Proposed
Conduct surveys to estimate the population, perhaps using call play-back and mist-netting (T. Sherry in litt. 2007). Monitor population trends through regular surveys. Carry out research into the species's breeding biology (T. Sherry in litt. 2007). Study the impact of introduced mammals. Begin to eradicate introduced mammals where feasible.
