1. What is the Network of Coastal Ecotourism Areas or Ecoareas-mardetodos?
A canarian proposal, innovative and pioneering, to boost the coastal areas of ecotourism interest.

This project designs and applies new methods to stimulate and evaluate coastal environments, promoting tourism uses based on the sustainable use of natural heritage.

It relies on the active participation of civil society (public and private), generating processes of collaboration and consensus for a more solid and lasting governance.

These Ecoareas are not a new protection figure, although they can enhance existing ones, as well as promote the creation of new protected areas or custody agreements.

2. How does it interact with other marine protection figures such as the Natura 2000 Network or the Marine Reserves of Fishing Interest? ?
An Ecoarea must be compatible and favor any pre-existing figure of any Administration that is oriented towards the development of sustainable practices.

The Ecoareas refer to duly certified spaces for which a voluntary adhesion is proposed in the participation processes.

As with other certifications, the Ecoareas do not require their own legal status. In fact, as one of its objectives, the project aims to contribute to facilitate the work of the Administrations: agreeing the methods and supporting their application.

Encouraging the cooperation for the improvement of the different uses of coastal areas.

The Ecoareas intend to provide a micro-scale of solutions and alternatives, promoting at the same time major dynamics materialized in the Canary Islands Network of Coastal Ecotourism Areas.

They are small seeds to improve the future of these environments and their populations.
