The marine fauna of Lanzarote

The temperate waters support more than 500 species of which about 10% are endemic to Lanzarote. Tourism on a global scale is critically endangering certain species such as the angel shark, a cousin of the rays, which is totally harmless and if divers leave it alone, it will come to bask on the sandy bottom near the shore.Some of them are not very shy (peacock shark, cuttlefish), others play hide and seek with divers (seahorses)...and the diver becomes a tourist who can observe different species in their habitat: sandy bottom, rocks, close to the surface (barracudas), hidden in the corners (morays), grazing on the seaweed of the drop offs, hidden in caves (shrimps)...


The flora of Lanzarote

Singular flora, given the volcanic existence that has strongly determined the implantation and survival of animal and plant species. The climate is mild and temperate with the influence of the Azores anticyclone and fresh and permanent trade winds. The ecosystem is described as tabaibal (composed mainly of euphorbias and shrubs adapted to drought, strong winds and constant sunshine). The Saharan winds regularly bring insects, seeds in suspension and of course this orange sand which transforms the sky into a flamboyant spectacle,...


The geological history of Lanzarote

It is now 14 million years since volcanoes formed on a fault line west of what would become the African continent. The island's geography is varied: rounded hillsides, barrancos (ravines), malpais(es) (lava fields), expanses of dark ash (la Geria), and volcanic cones. Due to their geological constitution, whether they are eruptive or essentially composed of ash, they have a color that varies from orange-red to dark gray.

What accentuates the poetic aspect is the lighting given by the sun and the shadows of the rare clouds flying over the island, so everyone will find a certain beauty constantly renewed.
