Spitsbergen Island

Spitsbergen Island

Spitsbergen Island is located in the Svalbard Archipelago, an icy collection of islands found above of the Arctic circle and is known for its fragile populations of walruses, beluga whales, harbor seals, reindeer and polar bears. While the entire planet is facing the negative effects of climate change, this area of the world is perhaps hit the hardest; so much sea ice has melted that some enormous glaciers have nearly disappeared over the last 50 years. Scientists are calling for the world to pursue clean energy alternatives to reduce carbon emissions to preserve this sensitive area and the rest of the world.
