  Arctic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Arctic region is one of the last and most extensive continuous wilderness areas in the world and its significance in preserving biodiversity and genotypes is considerable.
The Arctic is particularly susceptible to the abrasion of groundcover and to the disturbance of the rare reproduction places of the animals that are characteristic to the region.
During the Cold War, the Arctic region was extensively monitored by the United States military, since it was the opinion of the said military that the first warnings of a Soviet Union nuclear strike would have been indicated by ICBMs launched over the North Pole towards the United States.

The Postal Service consultant raised a rather delicate question after receiving Ripper's drawing of the bighorn sheep, a male specimen on which a part of the testicles showed behind the hind leg.

The Postal Service briefly considered printing the wildlife stamps on the Bureau's "D" press, a state-of-the-art unit completed in 1984 and capable of producing stamps in a combination of up to six offset colors and three intaglio (engraved) colors in a single operation.

Dave, a Naval Reserve station-keeper YN1 showed me a directive that if a command who operated in the arctic prior to '82 put in some kind of report, that the personnel of that command would be authorized to wear the ribbon.
He was willing to do some kind of entry in my reserve jacket if I could show him a "bluenose" certificate, but somehow my certificate never got entered in my service record while on the Hammer.
