The Gran Canaria Biosphere Reserve Core Zone is the arena within the ‘reserve territory' where the majority of its remarkable natural values concentrates. The core of a Biosphere Reserve can be a continuous area or several units, being Gran Canaria one of the latter. The most valuable examples of our natural heritage are Inagua and Güigüi.
The main activity taking place in the core zone is conservation. It is protected by conservation and management rules in order to preserve and maintain the special biological diversity of Gran Canaria either today or in the future.
