Blue-throated Macaw
The Blue-throated Macaw is highly threatened and endemic to the seasonally inundated savannas of north-eastern Bolivia. With an extremely small population, this spectacular bird was thought extinct until a small remnant population was discovered a few years ago. Visiting this area offers great birding and will support several ongoing conservation projects.
Sloths noted for the slowness of movement and for spending most of their lives hanging upside down in the trees of the tropical rainforests of South America and Central America, are arboreal mammals. There are six species in two families: two-toed sloths and three-toed sloths.
Bolivian Flamingos
Concealed by the rugged habitat of the Bolivian Altiplano at elevations above 14,000 feet is an unlikely nesting colony of thousands of volcano flamingos. All three species are found in this part of the Andes—the Chilean flamingo, Andean flamingo, and the elusive James’s flamingo.
Largest Flowers
It looks like an upside-down palm tree, but it’s actually a flower. Towering up to 40 feet, the colossal Titanka (Puya raimondii) is the largest flower in the world. This bromeliad blooms only once in its 100-year lifetime! And guess which –no so tiny– hummingbird is often spotted near this giant flower…
Bolivian River Dolphin
The Amazon or pink river dolphin (Inia geoffrensis) is the largest of its kind. Known locally as ‘bufeo’, the endemic Bolivian river dolphin (I. g. boliviensis) is a protected species. This beautiful freshwater mammal is commonly seen along rivers and lakes of the Amazon basin throughout the year, singly or in small groups.
Bolivia’s Big Cats
Big cats are rare, elusive and usually nocturnal. Among them, the Jaguar is the top predator in the Neotropics. Wildcat and big mammal viewing in Bolivia requires a bit of luck but you can try yours in areas of dense rainforest, wooded expanses, and swamps. Explore Bolivia for big cats, naturally!
Giant River Otter
In Bolivia, the giant river otter is considered the queen of the aquatic world. This charismatic freshwater mammal of up to two metres long can be seen along rivers and lakes of the Amazonian basin in Bolivia where relatively healthy populations remain, despite dangers that threaten them.
Yacaré Caiman
Bolivia hosts 5 species of caiman, including two endangered species. Like turtles, their distribution is restricted to the Amazonian forests and Chaco mainly. Their relatively smaller size makes them a potential prey of the jaguar and anaconda, while their diet consists primarily of fish and birds as well as small mammals.
The Capybara is the world’s largest rodent, being almost as large as a pig. Capybaras may not be the rarest creatures to be seen on a Bolivia tour (least concern by the IUCN) but they are affectionate and always fun to watch.
Bolivian Titi Monkeys
A new species of titi monkey, Callicebus aureipalatii locally known as ‘lucachi’, was recently found in the humid forest of Madidi National Park in Bolivia. To date, 23 primate species have been identified in Bolivia, grouped in 13 genera and 5 families. Come closer to wildlife in Bolivia, naturally!
Other Wildlife
Confined to the high mountain region of the tropical Andes there remains only a small percentage left of the original Polylepis woodlands of keñua trees that are home to many specialised birds and wildlife, now threatened by habitat fragmentation and global change. Ancient rainforest is another big draw for visitors coming to Bolivia. Going back in time while entering the realm of the great ferns, you’re welcome to walk amongst giants that are hundreds of years old. Moss and lichens, giant fern as tall as large trees, reaching more than 4 meters high… Marvel at unparalleled floristic diversity and explore the rugged mountains of central Bolivia on a botanical tour with emphasis on the Plants and Wildflowers of your choice—Cacti & other Succulents, Bromeliads, Orchids & other Epiphytes…

Community-based Fire Management Initiatives in Bolivia

Fires sweep across Bolivia every year.

Fire incidence has increased in recent years, damaging and transforming wild areas into degraded forests, savannas, and sterile lands. Severe events have been registered in which hectares of forests and wild lands burned, in some cases recurrently.

Bolivia Naturally partners, with a number of local agencies, and at the ground level (municipalities) try to educate and train local populations with community-based fire management.

The scope of operations includes vulnerability and impact analysis and – most importantly – awareness raising and training addressed to ranchers associations, farmers, local social groups, indigenous communities, and the general public.

Current challenges include integrating fire management in forest and landscape management – from early warning systems to post-fire tree regeneration – in Bolivian tropical forests.

Your tourism dollars help local communities who live with and steward nature, protecting the environment and improving livelihoods by strengthening local capabilities in the establishment of good practices in fire management.
