The geoheritage and geodiversity of the national parks contribute, together with biodiversity, to make them protected natural areas that are unique in Spain, but also unique worldwide. Geoheritage is non-renewable and if it is lost or degraded it does so forever. Under the Global Change and Climate Change scenario, the geoheritage of the Canary national parks is highly vulnerable to the impacts caused by changes in temperature, flash floods, extreme storms, droughts, desertification, fires and sea level rise, fundamentally and to the impacts directly derived from human activity. These phenomena trigger the activation of geological processes that directly affect their conservation, in such a way that it is necessary to identify the geosites most threatened, to evaluate their impact and to establish the indicators at the scale of each national park for monitoring them. The knowledge of the current conservation status of geoheritage, its vulnerability and its direct threats will contribute to the management of the national parks for the process of adaptation and mitigation of Global Change.
