Southern Grasshopper Mouse

Southern Grasshopper Mouse

The southern grasshopper mouse is listed as “Least Concern” due to its wide distribution, presumed large population, stable population trend, unlikeliness to decline, and no known major threats.

The southern grasshopper mouse is listed as Least Concern on the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining at nearly the rate required to qualify for listing in a threatened category.

The southern grasshopper mouse has a currently stable population trend and the population is not severely fragmented.

The species has no known major threats. There are no currently known conservation issues associated with southern grasshopper mice, which is mainly due to its wide distribution and tolerance for disturbances caused by arthropods. However, some disturbances have been observed in their low density populations.

Many more population studies will need to be performed in order to gain further insight into the conservation status of this species.
