What would happen if the world was suddenly without people – if humans vanished off the face of the Earth? How would nature react? In April 1986, the Chernobyl nuclear power plant located eighty miles north of Kiev in the former USSR, lost control of one of its four reactors and the resulting chain reaction was a series of explosions. A devastating fireball blew off the reactor’s heavy steel and concrete lid. In the immediate aftermath, more than thirty people died. Highly radioactive fall-out flooded everything within a twenty-mile radius: thirty-five thousand cattle and one hundred and thirty-five thousand people had to be evacuated. Only wild animals remained. While humans have made life in this land impossible for themselves, animals have found a way. They have not just survived, they have thrived.
