This species is considered to be Vulnerable due to a small population size and ongoing decline inferred from hunting and habitat loss, and where 100% of the individuals are in a single subpopulation. Duarte et al
. (2005), estimated the total population size of this species as 5,500 individuals (mature individuals being a fraction of this number), limited for the Coastal Atlantic Forest in Brazil. This area is threatened by human occupation (70% of the Brazilian population lives inside the original limits of the Atlantic Forest), poaching and dog predation. Though small, the distribution area of M. bororo
has more than 3,600 kmÂ² of officially protected areas and many of them are connected between each other, forming one of the biggest blocks of Atlantic Forest in Brazil (i.e. one subpopulation).
