Svalbard Reindeer, Rangifer tarandus platyrhynchus
Reindeer have a circumpolar distribution with several subspecies in different areas. The Svalbard reindeer is a small subspecies of Rangifer tarandus. The subspecies found in Svalbard is exclusive to this area. Reindeer are found in virtually all non-glaciated parts of the archipelago. They are most dense on Nordenskiöld Land, Edgeøya and Barentsøya. http://www.npolar.no/en/the-arctic/birds-and-mammals/svalbard-reindeer.html
