Conservation Status

Hoopoes are not threatened, and are common and abundant in most of their range. They have, however, suffered diminished populations at the boundaries of their ranges, especially in Europe where most of their populations have declined over the twentieth century and into the twenty-first century. Their numbers have declined in Africa, Madagascar, and Asia due to previously productive land that has gradually turned into deserts and other lands that have been turned into farmland. A previous species, the giant hoopoe, has been extinct probably since the year 1600.
