The barasingha, or swamp deer, used to be found over many areas of India covered by moist deciduous forests. The population has declined drastically over recent years mainly due to loss of habitat. This could be for wetland reclamation, timber cutting, illegal gathering of timber or the growth of tree plantations.

Poaching and diseases introduced by cattle may also have been factors for its decline.
