Salvar Tenerife shows, as never before, the overexploitation to which the island of Tenerife is subjected. It receives more than 6 million tourists a year and has a population of 930,000 inhabitants.
These figures are the result of the disastrous way in which the island has been managed over the last decades and at present. An infinite and unsustainable growth that is threatening more than ever the natural spaces and biodiversity of Tenerife, which is increasingly deteriorated.
This documentary aims to promote a change towards a real sustainable development, so that we can have a future in which we can coexist with nature and continue to enjoy Tenerife (and the rest of the Canary Islands) in its wild and natural state.
