No accurate Survey has been made on the Saola.  Accurate population estimates would be exceedingly difficult to obtain even if the species were not rare, due to its reported secretive behavior, the difficulty of making direct observations in dense, rugged and remote forest habitat, and the fact that signs of the species cannot at present be unequivocally distinguished from other ungulates of similar size in its range .The IUCN estimates the total Saola population to be between 70 and 750.
