The Bolivian Amphibian Initiative is a project aiming to protect, monitor, and generate information on endangered species in Bolivia with a focus on species in the high Andean region. This project made up of 4 components:

1. Teaching the local community about amphibians and the threats causing their decline while providing training in herpetological methods for park-guards, young biologists, and the general public.
2. Research providing data on amphibian diversity, ecology, and natural history.
3. Education programs designed for local communities, schools and staff working in protected areas.
4. Developing a captive breeding strategy for threatened species that is the first of its kind in Bolivia.

The Bolivian amphibian initiative works as a project of the Museo de Historia Natural Alcide d'Orbigny and Fundacion para las ciencias
