Rivoli's Hummingbird is considered of Least Concern globally (BirdLife International 2012); this assessment also includes the populations of Costa Rica and Panama what we recognize as a separate species, Talamanca Hummingbird (Eugenes spectabilis), but because the distribution of Talamanca is so small relative to that of Rivoli's, the inclusion of Talamanca has no real effect on BirdLife International's conservation assessment.
Effects of human activity on populations
Rivoli's Hummingbird is vulnerable to habitat loss and degradation. There is little evidence of any direct use of Rivoli's Hummingbird by humans, but in the highlands of Chiapas there is the medicinal use of the hummingbirds (generally) by indigenous Tsotsil and Tzeltal communities (Enríquez et al. 2006).
