The IUCN Red List has the North African serval (F. (L.) s. constantinus) as Endangered but all other servals as Least Concern (as of 1995). In the Cape region of southern Africa, servals were historically restricted to the coastal belt, and inland to east of 24░ East Longitude, where most of the human pressure is concentrated. They are now extinct in the Cape Province of South Africa. Natural re-population seems unlikely, so re-introduction is the only option. Fortunately, servals do breed well and can have a long life span (up to 20 years old) in captivity.

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) have prohibited all international commerce in serval products, under Appendix I, which does make it illegal to hunt or poach servals for their spotted coats.
