The gully of Ajuí is located in the west of Fuerteventura, and holds running water, scrub, grassland, agricultural land and small copses of Tamarix. Betancuria is a mountainous area, semi-desertic with sparse vegetation. Human activities include goat-grazing.
The site is one of the most important sites on the island for breeding Saxicola dacotiae, raptors and steppic species, and is also important as a stop-over site for migrating passerines.
