Animals Make Comeback 30 Years After Chernobyl Disaster

Animals Make Comeback 30 Years After Chernobyl Disaster


30 years ago, there was a huge meltdown at the Chernobyl nuclear reactor in Russia.  The massive amounts of radiation released led to the creation of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, a large area where humans are still forbidden to enter.  But like something out of a post-apocalyptic horror movie, nature has taken over the Exclusion Zone and plants and animals are thriving.

Check out this fascinating video from National Geographic which takes you inside the still-forbidden Exclusion Zone, where scientists are able to observe what happens in a once-populated area when nature thrives in the absence of humans.  Large mammals like gray wolves, raccoon dogs, and red foxes have made the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone their own.
