Anaga, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve at Last

The announcement that Anaga in the north east of Tenerife has finally been awarded UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status is long overdue.

Every other Canary Island except Tenerife (until now) can boast Biosphere status. La Gomera with the focus on Garajonay; Fuerteventura and its western coastline; Lanzarote and the volcanic landscape; a third of Gran Canaria and the whole of La Palma and El Hierro.

Tenerife has two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Teide National Park and the old centre of La Laguna. But it seems crazy that it was the only island without a Biosphere Reserve given its rich history and geographical characteristics.
