PRESENTACIÓN | elittoral in Macaronesia

The term Macaronesia gives its name to the set of five archipelagos near the African coasts that share many factors in common. They are the archipelagos of the Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Madeira, Azores and Wild Islands.  The word "Macaronesia" comes from the Greek (μακάρων νῆσοι,  makárōn nêsoi) and you mean "lucky islands"  .

All archipelagos are outermost regions that are far from the countries or the continent to which they belong, enjoy a very pleasant climate throughout the year and share similar flora and fauna, as well as the volcanic origin of the islands.

Based in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, elittoral is an international marine environment consultancy strongly committed to protecting the Macaronesian sea and improving the quality of life of its society and future generations.  


Since 2009 we work for a sustainable use of the sea and its resources and today we have more than 20 international projects between Europe, Africa and Central and South America.
