Rufous Sabrewing has a restricted geographic range, but nonetheless maintains an IUCN Red List conservation status of Least Concern (BirdLife International 2013). In Mexico it is considered as a species under special protection, although no conservation or management program is known for this species. Rufous Sabrewing 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 on Appendix I of CITES).
