Yes, you'll have some plant and animal species that can be seen at some places in this desert area, but you'll surely appreciate them while savouring the majestic dunes.

Thriving Wildlife

UNESCO had granted Fuerteventura the status of a Biosphere Reserve in the year 2009. It seems the unique and rich natural setting and wildlife of the island couldn't be ignored any more. There are about 13 protected nature parks on this island and almost half of the total land area in Fuerteventura has been marked for conservation. You'll find the leatherback turtles while exploring the western coast. The Barbary Ground Squirrel, also known as 'chipmunk' can be found all over the island. These squirrels were brought as pets back in 1965, but they multiplied rapidly over the years. Today, many tourists feel delighted to watch the squirrels and some even have the pleasure of feeding them.
