An area of scrub, steppe-grassland and sea cliffs on the south-west tip of Lanzarote. Human activities include livestock-farming and residential use.
This is an important area for Chlamydotis undulata and other steppic birds.
Pressure/threats to key biodiversity
Threats include soil extraction, habitat fragmentation due to new roads and powerlines, and disturbance to birds caused by jeep-safaris. The area is a game refuge. The local government has undertaken four censuses of Chlamydotis undulata since 1979, and monitoring of the impacts of electric powerlines on birds takes place.
