Preservation of the natural environment during the summe
Radio Sintonia:

Fuerteventura fights for the preservation of the natural environment during the summer.

The Cabildo stresses the importance of both tourists and residents adopting sustainable habits to preserve the environment in good condition. In addition, it reports that around 150 disciplinary proceedings are currently being processed, which were initiated after complaints filed by agents of the authority.

The Cabildo of Fuerteventura, under the direction of Carlos Rodríguez, who directs the Environment and Hunting Area, calls on tourists and residents to enjoy this summer on the island respecting and protecting its coasts, beaches, natural parks and endemic species that inhabit the island. It is essential that the population adopts sustainability habits to preserve the environment in good condition and thus reduce the ecological footprint.

Fuerteventura has unique geological, erosive and ecosystem characteristics. The island has an extensive area of coastal areas that are home to an endemic biodiversity unique in the world, which could be seriously affected by the effects of climate change.

Also, the nature of the island offers the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of activities during the summer, such as exploring the Rural Park of Betancuria or the Natural Park of Jandía. Regardless of the destination chosen, it is essential to adopt environmentally friendly behaviors to avoid its deterioration. This implies respecting the indications and regulations of natural spaces, not discarding waste and avoiding disturbing native species.

There are areas on the island that are home to unique species of the island, both for their environmental and historical value. It is crucial not to take specimens from these places, as this can affect the balance of ecosystems. It also warns about the danger of harmful practices such as the plundering of stones, shells and other elements of the environment such as rhodoliths, which have become a counterproductive tourist attraction in recent years.

Moreover, all visitors and residents are reminded of the importance of not leaving garbage on the beaches, as most waste ends up in the sea, causing irreparable damage. In addition, emphasis is placed on the need to reduce the amount of garbage generated by reusing plastic bags as many times as possible.

It is important to take proper precautions with cigarette butts to prevent pollution on beaches. It is essential to use the ashtrays designated for your deposit, and if you do not have one, store them until you find a suitable place to dispose of them.

Finally, it is necessary to respect the existing roads and trails on the island. Driving vehicles in pristine areas leaves a lasting impact that takes decades to fade, and creates a path for other users to follow. This practice not only damages the landscape, but also harms wild animals and plants that need their space to live and reproduce. It is of utmost importance that the roads and trails already established are respected, whether by vehicle, on foot or by bicycle.

The Insular Institution and the Ministry of Environment trust in the responsibility and commitment of all citizens, tourists and residents to preserve the natural beauty of Fuerteventura, ensuring that future generations can enjoy all that this island has to offer.


The Protected Natural Areas and the spaces included in the Natura 2000 Network present in Fuerteventura are protection figures established in European, state and regional legislation. Its objective is to establish a legal regime for the conservation, sustainable use, enhancement and restoration of natural heritage and biodiversity.

At present, around 150 disciplinary proceedings initiated by complaints from environmental authority agents are being carried out. Most of these infractions are related to parking outside the designated areas in the Natural Park of Corralejo and Jandía, as well as non-compliance with the rules of visiting the Montaña de Tindaya Natural Monument. In addition, a constant effort is being made to successfully complete the processing of complaints sent abroad.

From the Ministry of Environment calls on the local population and visitors to respect and comply with the rules of conservation and protection of protected natural spaces, through civic behaviors that allow the responsible use and enjoyment of all, warning that such administrative infractions can be subject to a pecuniary penalty of up to € 6,000.
