This rich nature has contributed favourably to the fact that a great part of the geographical territory has been declared a Biosphere Reserve. Gran Canaria is the island with the most diverse milieus in the Micronesia, as a result of the centralised positioning it has in relation to the Micronesia and the Archipelago of the Canary Islands.
