In 1998 it was said that the population of the Ainu consisted of roughly 20,000 peoples (Bugaeva, 2010).

This may not be a significant number, but with the help of scholars and funding from the government, the Ainu langugage can definitely get back on its feet and hopefully obtain more people who speak Ainu as a first language.
