At no point does the movie ever say that the village population was the entirety of the Nibiran species. Kirk and Spock were trying to disarm the volcano because they thought that there was a danger of the eruption decimating the planet's atmosphere, which could potentially have wiped out the entire Nibiran species. Kirk and Bones were trying to get the natives away from the village so that they wouldn't be killed by the cold fusion reactor's detonation. (The volcano thing isn't that implausible, by the way; there are several paleontologists who think that volcanic eruptions may have been a major factor in the K-T extinction event that wiped out the dinosaurs)

While this movie has enough plot holes to fly Narada's from thousands of timelines through, it opens with the convenient situation that the whole planet's population lives right near the base of the volcano.
