Nature and Environment
Off the African continent, powerful volcanic activities created the seven Canary Islands, which host a particularly rich biodiversity in small spaces. The Canary Islands are more than only a holiday destination for sun worshippers from Central Europe. They are a nature jewel and a habitat for specific plants and animals. Since the rain quantities on the islands differ distinctly, the flora and fauna on the single islands have developed in completely different ways. There are desert-like zones of sparse beauty on the one side, and on the other, lush forests full of endemic plants, where rare animals hide.
