Endemic species are species that are native to and exclusively found in a particular geographic area or region. These species have evolved and adapted to specific environmental conditions and factors that are unique to that particular location, such as climate, habitat, and resources. Endemic species are only found in certain regions because they have developed specific characteristics that allow them to thrive in that specific environment, making it difficult for them to survive in other areas where the conditions may be different.
