  • Photo by @daisygilardini | The Svalbard reindeer is endemic to Svalbard and it is the smallest of all the seven sub-species found in the Arctic. Svalbard reindeer were hunted to near extinction early last century. The population recovered during a hunting banning from 1925 to 1983.
Today, quota-based harvests are held every year for local residents but still the leading cause of death is not hunting, though, but hunger and starvation.
Climate change has led unpredictable swings in temperatures. Increased rainfalls followed by sudden frost cause pasture to freeze solid. This forces the reindeer to graze on more gravelled pastures, which in turns wears down their teeth, sometimes completely. Lack of food and bad teeth are the perfect recipe for starvation.
