    I would strongly advise not to downlist the species from EN to VU. The current suspected estimate is in my opinion too high and still only based on 2002. The species does not show any sign of increase. In fact its close connection with mangroves leads me to suspect that the decline has continued alongside the decline of mangroves in the region (extent and quality) and hence still in a perilous state. In 2019 we only observed 30 + 2 birds at two locations during a week survey in the Menabe NP area. (Zöckler et al 2021).
