The Canary Islands are one of the main irregular migration accesses into Europe. Since 2020, more than 60,000 people from West Africa have arrived at these islands. Poorly equipped boats travel up to 1,500 km on trips that can last up to 3 weeks. The occupants often perish during these trips. The corpses of those who perish onboard are thrown into the ocean by those who remain alive. Ports on these islands are plagued with hundreds of these abandoned boats. This route is the deadliest across-sea migratory path on earth, it is estimated that 1 out of 20 people die on the attempt to reach Europe
