Major Threats : The species is certainly facing a high extinction risk due to natural factors rather than human impact. Grazing does not seem to be a problem since the plant is toxic.
Currently there is no legal protection for this species, despite the fact that the regional council of Sardinia proposed a draft law in 2001 concerning protection of plant species on the island, and that A. nuragica is listed in the Annex as an endemic species. The site is situated in the Gennargentu National Park, but due to the lack of a management committee, no protective measures are in place.
