To give just an idea, biodiversity offered by my country is so rich as few in the world. Bolivia has 17 ecoregions, 14 ecological floors , 190  ecosystems and 19 byoclimates.
That are home to 1,392 species of birds, 263 species of reptiles, 325 mammals, 18,000 species of higher plants, 186 of amphibians, 500 species of fish and very very much insects, as data from the Department of Biodiversity.
This vast variety is distributed in 21 protected areas, 6 of them are considered to be the largest in the world with more than 1 million hectares, Amboró Park and the majestic Madidi protected area designated as the most diverse in the world by the famous ornithologists Remsen and Parker, and one of the 20 most important tourist destinations in the world, as well catalogued by the prestigious international magazine Traveler, as reported by National Geographic magazine .
As if that were not enough, in May, the Salar de Uyuni was chosen as the most spectacular in the world by the magazine Rouge Guides, above wonders like the pyramids of Gizhe or Machu Picchu.
Without going too far, Lake Titicaca, the highest in the world, is ranked in the competition of the new 7 wonders of the world; others: Amazonia,  Laguna Colorada, the Salar de Uyuni,  Ulla Ulla and the Madidi Park.
