The estimated area of occupancy (AOO) and extent of occurrence (EOO) are 12 km2 and 2,493 km2, respectively. It is protected in situ in Tun Mustapha Park and Pulau Tiga Park. However, some parts of the islands have been proposed for limestone mining as in Balambangan Island which will cause loss in native flora and fauna.
