Around 1/3 of the island´s territory is protected because of its biological diversity and clean atmosphere. The UNESCO Biosphere Reserve covers approximately one third of the island territory and includes several natural protected areas and monuments.
The area includes totally or partially several municipalities as well as a marine zone. It is established around the Natural Reserve of Inagua, which is designated as a core area and the Reserva Natural Especial de Güigüí.
The core areas are surrounded by a common buffer zone (Parque Rural de El Nublo) and transition areas. The Natural Parks of Tamadaba and Pilancones, as well as other natural monuments and landscapes, are included in the transition areas and provide geographical continuity.
Gran Canaria Biosphere Reserve is located on the the south-western side of the island and includes the municipalities of Aldea de San Nicolás, Artenara and Tejeda, all of them above 300 metres of sea levels and the municipalites of San Bartolomé de Tirajana, Agaete and Mogán, and a sector of Vega de San Mateo included in the Parque Rural de El Nublo. It shows entire water catchment basins from the top of the island’s mountains through valleys used for agriculture and downto beaches and marine areas.
In spite of its small surface, Gran Canaria presents a great biodiversity. Its insular condition, geographic isolation, and the variety of ecological niches available for the vegetation have favoured the presence of a high number of endemic species.
