What happened to the wild nature more than 30 years after the Chernobyl disaster?

December 11, 2019 ( The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred on Saturday 26 April 1986, at the No. 4 nuclear reactor in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, near the city of Pripyat. An area originally extending 30 kilometers in all directions from the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant is officially called the "zone of alienation." It is largely uninhabited, except for about 300 residents who have refused to leave. The area has largely reverted to forest, and has been overrun by wildlife because of a lack of competition with humans for space and resources.

These pictures were taken in the heart of the "zone of alienation" by the hidden camera. It's hard to believe that only 31 years have passed since people left this area. It's amazing how quickly nature has managed to restore life in the area of man-made disaster! It turns out that radiation is not as terrible for animals as for humans.
