Wildlife at Chernobyl’s Exclusion Zone.

Rather unsurprisingly, the removal of human inhabitants from what’s now known as The Zone has enabled the return of wildlife to the land, to the point it now serves as a natural sanctuary, away from human disruption.

However, the ever-present radiation remains a source of concern for scientists, so to this day the current population is kept under observation to study the effects it has over it.
