The rare bird was included on the Red List of Threatened Species of the International Union for Conservation of Nature in 2012.

The first recorded observation of this bird was in Yinggeling National Nature Reserve in Hainan in 2012.

The presence of these rare birds in Sanya is a good indication that considerable efforts by the local government to improve the health of the urban ecological environment are having a positive impact.

In recent years, the local government has taken effective measures to improve the management of the inland wetlands and coastal ocean environment, making them more inviting places for birds and other marine life.
