Bird Bolivia is a tourism agency designed to support
sustainable conservation with local communities through well designed
birdwatching activities. We do not take a commission to visit conservation reserves- so tourism directly helps their conservation. No other agency does this in Bolivia.
Bird Bolivia believes in the mutualism that tourists
can enjoy the natural world while at the same time helping to support
the protection of threatened habitats and species. An important
link of benefits can occur when a birdwatcher or naturalist can
visit sites where threatened species live within community areas,
leaving a direct benefit to the local economy, stressing that untouched
nature also has an economic value.
Bird Bolivia is also a tourism agency that strives
to offer quality, punctual and professional services. We have specialized
local bird guides fluent in English and our birding routes. We work to train indigenous bird guides. Our
bird knowledge is based on scientific research and strong conservation
programs from the largest bird conservation NGO in Bolivia, Asociación
Armonia. Bird Bolivia works hand in hand with Armonia to support
bird conservation in Bolivia.
Bird Bolivia is a family run tourism agency, utilizing
Ruth Alipaz’s business administration knowledge with her tourism
community development experience to help local communities and Bolivian
conservation combining with her husband Bennett Hennessey’s
passion for birds and their protection.
