Conservation Status

Golden-crowned Emerald has a large geographic range and a large population and so the IUCN Red List conservation status of this species is Least Concern (BirdLife International 2013). It also is not considered to the threatened under Mexican law. Golden-crowned Emerald 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).

Effects of human activity on populations

Human activity probably has little short term effect on Golden-crowned Emerald.
