The restoration of the priority habitat "Endemic forests of Juniperus spp." in the Güigüí Special Nature Reserve will lay the foundations that will allow the Council of  Gran Canaria  implement recovery measures for this habitat in the southwestern region of the island, to safeguard this important ecosystem and its own species, as well as those depending on them.

Analysis and evaluation of priority habitat status 9560 * "Endemic forests with Juniperus spp." in the Güigüí Special Nature Reserve, action protocols for its recovery.

This project will act in the upper area of the Güigüí Special Nature Reserve, more concretely in the Los Hogarzos and Los Cedros Mountain. This area of the Island has a potential distribution of thermophilic forests with an important presence of junipers and cedars, as well as elements of Canary pine and sclerophyll laurel forests (heaths, peralillo tree, laurels, etc.), especially in the areas exposed to the trade winds.
