Fuerteventura as biosphere reserve?

19.07.2009 - Kategorie: Miscellaneous

As reported in various news programs, UNESCO plans to turn Fuerteventura into a biosphere reserve. 

News, however, differ about this subject. Some news pages report that Fuerteventura has only proposed a motion for a biosphere reserve and will be declared as such in may, other ones have communicated for already some time that Fuerteventura is already a UNESCO biosphere reserve.

In the official UNESCO list (for Spain) we haven't found Fuerteventura yet (as to  02/04/2009). Other Canary Islands such as Lanzarote, Gran Canaria, La Palma and El Hierro have already been listed. 

We are looking forward to it - also to possible changes on Fuerteventura.
