Wildlife

The wildlife in Svalbard varies a lot during the different times of the year. There are only a handful of animals which are living up here all year round. Almost all birds are only up here for the summer and as the autumn arrives they move to warmer a climate. The polar bear, the Arctic fox, the Svalbard reindeer and the ptarmigan are well adopted to the harsh winter climate and they are here all the time. However apart from the polar bear the other three animals have a completely different appearance in the summer as to he winter. THey mostly recognised in the winter fur, however there summer coats and plumage are just as spectacular. Hope you will enjoy looking through this collection.
