Who lives in svalbard?
Normal people like you and me. But they just live in a cold isolated place. I Longyearbyen (capital) they have a small supermarket to source the whole town/city. Further into the vicious north and more isolated parts inuits live. The people there are just like us.

Penguins do not live in Svalbard, they only live in the Antarctic.
Svalbard is important because the snw is melting and we need to help all the animals in danger

In Animal Life
Well, I don't know how many, but some of the more common are walruses, different birds, geese and gulls. Also Arctic foxes, and there is such a thing as a Svalbard reindeer. L…ook it up if you don't believe me. And of course, lots of fish and bacteria and small things in the water in and near it.
Some cruises of the Norwegian coast go to Svalbard, however the safest and cheapest method is a flight from Tromso to the one public airport on the island which is in Longyear…byen, this flight goes about once a day, flights from Tromso to the Norwegian capital Oslo are far more regular. There are a number of restrictions in Svalbard about where you are allowed to be, much of the island is reserve, not to mention dangerous, it is against the law to leave the town area of Longyearbyen without a method of defence against polar bears.
