Fossiliferous outcrops are golden gates for the study of past events. The Quaternary is a period marked by several oscillations of the sea level, resulting in several glacial and interglacial events. The Last Interglacial period, with the warmest interval occurring between ~128 ka to ~116 ka (Marine Isotopic Stage 5e (MIS 5e) had a mean global temperature 2ºC higher than today, resulting in a mean sea level (msl) ~8.67 m above present msl. Fuerteventura Island holds an extensive and well preserved fossiliferous record that urges to be studied and preserved. As part of Project ECLIPSA, that aims to study field evidences of past climates changes in the Canary islands, a survey has been preformed in Fuerteventura Island, being now presented the preliminary results, as well a complilation of previous works regarding the outcrops from this island.
