Chernobyl Flourishing

No people actually live in Chernobyl. They haven't since May 1986.

The vegetation in the Chernobyl zone has flourished. Flora and fauna have made the best of the situation without human interference and claimed their space. Scientists found that since 1990, growth flourished and the ecological effect has been positive. Eighty percent of the zone is now forested; before the disaster, it was just 20 percent. A total of 240 species of animals have been counted within the exclusion zone, most of which were present only in low numbers before the disaster.
