  • Research team finds thriving wildlife in Chernobyl

    A team of international researchers, including James Beasley, assistant professor of wildlife ecology at the University of Georgia Savannah River Ecology Laboratory and the Warnell School Forestry and Natural Resources, has discovered abundant populations of wildlife at Chernobyl, the site of the 1986 nuclear accident that released radioactive particles into the environment and forced a massive evacuation of the human population.

    In the current issue of the journal Current Biology, the researchers report the site looks more like a nature preserve than a disaster zone—abundant with moose, roe deer, wild boar and wolves—nearly 30 years after the world's largest nuclear accident.
