Chestnut-breasted Coronet has a large geographic range and the population is not believed to be experiencing significant delines. Consequently the IUCN Red List conservation status of this coronet is Least Concern (BirdLife International 2014). Chestnut-breasted Coronet is included in Appendix II of CITES, as is the case with all hummingbirds, regardless of rarity (except for Hook-billed Hermit Glaucis dohrnii, which is Endangered and is on Appendix I of CITES).
The relative abundance of Chestnut-breasted Coronet is assessed as uncommon to fairly common in Ecuador (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001a) and as uncommon to common in Peru (Schulenberg et al. 2010).
Effects of human activity on populations
