The species main threat is the loss of its habitat, which affects the nesting areas and decreases its availability of food.
The American black bear mainly inhabits the mountainous areas of northern Mexico. The most important populations in Coahuila are near Serranías del Burro, Zapalinamé and Maderas del Carmen.
