They have the smallest range of the genus, which coincides with the most densely populated part of Brazilian Amazonia, a region with a long tradition of colonization, and which now has deforestation levels that begin to rival those of the Atlantic Forest. Over the last few decades, the establishment of highways, implantation of the Tucuruí hydroelectric dam, logging, and agricultural and ranching activities have led to widespread devastation of forested areas in this region. The proliferation of secondary roads has further exacerbated this process. The Black Bearded Saki is already locally extinct in a large part of its original range and what remains is extremely fragmented and under constant deforestation pressure. A suspected population decline of at least 80% is likely, considering the loss of habitat; Adams and Vieira (2010) reported that forest cover in the Belém Endemism Center, has already been reduced by 76%.
