Fuerteventura was designated a UNESCO biosphere reserve in May 2009. The reserve spans a total area of 352.813 hectares and is the largest in the Canary Islands.
Fuerteventura is home to 13 areas of natural Community Interest and nine areas awarded special protection for birds. The island has a wide range of ecosystems ranging from desert and semi-desert areas to coastal and marine habitats.
The island’s unique marine, cultural, ethnological, landscape and geological treasures gave rise to Fuerteventura being designated a biosphere reserve: recognition of its commitment to renewable energies, water management and responsible fishing practices.
Fuerteventura, the oldest of the Canary Islands, has an extensive natural heritage stemming from its aridity and the presence of a rich and diverse marine environment. The island’s unique personality translates into a heritage rich in customs and traditions.
