설명

Fuerteventura has an area of 1,658 square kilometres, and is the second largest island in the Canary islands. The UNESCO declared the island and its marine habitat a Biosphere Reserve in 2009.

Fuerteventura is the easternmost of the Canary Islands and is home to an outstanding diversity of ecosystems and a wide variety of marine species. Visitors to the island will find everything from desert and semi-desert areas to a marine environment. The sperm whales and dolphins are its most important marine animals, as well as the turtles which reproduce on its beaches. It is also one of the world’s main geopaleontological observatories. The UNESCO, with its declaration of Fuerteventura as a Biosphere Reserve, recognises the island’s effort in aid of the development of sustainable tourism practices. In fact, it is one of the best models of implementation of the European Union directive on renewable energies.
