Clean Sweep!

Lanzarote Limpia is an organisation that has been doing wonders raising awareness of Lanzarote's magnificent natural landscapes and how human negligence is damaging them. Last month, they organised a clean-up around the pechiguera lighthouse in Playa Blanca, and we went along to join them.

Emergency Control

Enrique Espinosa has been in charge of Lanzarote's Emergency Services Consortium for ten years. Located in the fire station in Arrecife, the consortium is the nerve centre of all emergency responses on Lanzarote. We spoke to Enrique last month.

Looking after Yaiza

Ángel Domínguez Ojeda is Yaiza's councillor for Tourism and Social Services, as well as Mayor Oscar Noda's first lieutenant. Born in Venezuela, he has spent more than 16 years in politics in the southern municipality.

Protecting Nature

Gloria Moreno meets us in a teleclub in Tiagua, a village that overlooks El Jable, the sandy desert area that is one of the most important wildlife zones on Lanzarote. She's speaking to us today in a personal capacity, outside of her professional role as an officer in the Guardia Civil's wildlife department, Seprona, and she's full of ideas to improve the island she loves.

The bright side of life

Anna-Lis Gasque's elegance and positive attitude are well-known to many on the island, so we were overjoyed when she agreed to pose among the flowers for this month's cover. At 74, she remains as luminously beautiful as ever: “I disappear when I'm next to her” smiles her husband Kenneth.

On the frontline

Dr. Laura Callero has had an eventful year. Tías's Health Councillor is also a frontline medic at Arrecife's Dr. José Molina Orosa Hospital, and hit the headlines last March as the third case of coronavirus on the island (which later proved to be a false alarm). We spoke to her last month.
