TOURISM AND BIOSPHERE RESERVES: THE CASE OF EASTERN CANARY ISLANDS
In this paper, we declare a condition that involves biosphere reserve area for future tourism development. In this paper we study the Eastern Canary Islands (Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria). This work has been developed from an extensive work with numerous interviews with the affected population that allows us to make qualitative assessments of many people living in these biosphere reserves areas. We have also obtained information from diverse Canary literature, and especially the biosphere reserve. In summary, this work demonstrates how the alternative tourism has taken the figures of protecting the territory, including the designation of biosphere reserve in order to developing a convenient but not sustainable way.
