    Climate change can exert biological; ecological and physical pressures resulting in changes such as a loss of canopy continuity and increased fire frequency.
    Given that significant threats such as climate change and habitat decline through changes to hydrology and water quality would likely impact the entire area virtually at once; the species can be considered to be contained at a single location (IUCN Standards and Petitions Subcommittee 2017).
    Increasing fire frequency appears to have reduced the extent of permanently waterlogged habitats such as that occupied by the White bellied Frog.
