There are few places on earth that have such a diverse variety of terrain and range of climates concentrated in a relatively small area - temperate coastline, scorching arid deserts and tundra, tropical rainforests and frozen snowcapped mountains. And there are few places that are as heavily exploited by humans, yet remain a wilderness. These are the Canary Islands – each island is unique, and together they possess all the features of a small continent, supporting one of the richest and most diverse ranges of native species on the planet.
