Conservation Summary

  • Globally
    Of least concern (LC) (Source: IUCN Red List)
    Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of extensive habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
  • Italy
    Lc - minor preoccupazione (Source: IUCN Liste Rosse Italiane)
    Valutata specie a Minor Preoccupazione (LC) per la sua ampia distribuzione, per la popolazione presumibilmente ampia, per la tolleranza a una vasta varietà di habitat, per la spiccata antropofilia e perché è poco probabile che sia in declino abbastanza rapido per rientrare in una categoria di minaccia.
  • Portugal
    Vulnerável (vu) (Source: Livro Vermelho dos Vertebrados de Portugal)
