Fall 2008 was the warmest in the history of the Arctic Arctic autumn of 2008 was the hottest in the history of weather observations in this region, according to a special report on climate observations 'Arctic Report Card', which is published by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration United States. Climate scientists from 10 countries on the results of observations have established that the average temperatures in the Arctic this year, higher than normal at five degrees Celsius. The main reason for such high temperatures, scientists called the melting of Arctic ice. The disappearance of ice cover leads to the fact that the ocean absorbs more solar energy. This, in turn, leads to an increase in air temperature. Report of the Arctic Report Card compiled annually and consists of six sections devoted to the study of the atmosphere, ocean, land, ice, as the first three sections has been assigned the color red.
This means that changes in the atmosphere, ice cover and glaciers of Greenland are catastrophic. Scientists have discovered the longest beetle in the world and deer, which was considered Extinct world's longest beetle researchers found on the island of Borneo.

Sumatran muntjac deer are now included in the Red Book of the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) as a species threatened extinction.
ffi plans to start work in conjunction with the Academy of Sciences of Indonesia and Indonesia's Forest Inspectorate to determine the population size of deer, muntjac, subsequently to develop a program to protect them. Defenders Nature wants to declare 2009 the Year of the gorilla decision to declare 2009 the Year of the gorillas were last week, members of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS, Bonn Convention).

Already in the Red Book of the International Union for Conservation Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) made three of the four subspecies of gorillas, since Currently, these subspecies are on the verge of extinction.
