Linking bird watching with capacity building, ecofriendly sustainable development, and conservation in one of Latin America’s most biodiverse countries

Bolivia is a megadiverse country but still lacks a guide to its about 1420 bird species, including 15 endemics and 18 near-endemics. Have you ever wondered why? We have set out to close this gap, and we are almost there, but we need your support for the last leg of the journey. We invite you to be part of history in the making. Below and through the menu bar we provide detailed information and answers to the most obvious questions you may have. If your curiosity is still not satisfied, please do not hesitate to contact us at
