What about endemism in Corsica?

Mouflon12Each region possesses its variety and exclusiveness as regards to what is ‘naturally’ present

This is declared as ‘endemic’ and Corsica has a high rate of endemism. Approximately 280 species and sub species of plants, of which 140 are located in Corsica, and 80 in Sardinia highlighting the fact of the importance of this area in the persistence of species. The abundance of soils, insularity and climate variation influence the ecosystems. If you are lucky and also patient, on one of your walks up the mountains, you may see a Corsican mouflon! Molluscs, insects, butterflies, fish, reptiles, birds (fauna/flora).  The rocky structures of organic origin of the Natural Reserve of Scandola (accessible by boat) welcomes you to explore wild beauty, where you can discover corals, shellfish, birds, myrtle, dolphins, and so much more, certainly worth a day trip! – I’ll be telling you more about Scandola too, sometime soon.
