”NUCLEAR FALLOUT IS OFTEN CHARACTERIZED by its human toll: the immediate casualties, the complete exodus from the region, the radioactivity that continues to permeate the lives of those affected, and the surrounding area, for years afterward. But less attention is paid to the affected animals, which generally exist beyond the scope of human disaster protocols.

Now, an extensive photographic survey has revealed the resurgence of animal populations in Fukushima, Japan, where nearly a decade ago a nuclear disaster forced living creatures—human and bestial alike—to flee en masse…

Yet to be determined is the actual effects of the radioactive fallout on the animals’ physiology. The recent study was literally the first look at which animals had returned to the area—and another piece of evidence that if given a choice between a human hub and an empty radioactive zone, many animals would opt for, and thrive in, the latter.

“Chernobyl and Fukushima are terrible environmental and human tragedies, and we shouldn’t lose sight of that,” Beasley says. “But they’re also important living laboratories for understanding the effects of radiation on plants and animals.””
