Interesting.

The absence of human activity in the exclusion zone has benefited the wildlife of the region more than any possible damage it may have suffered as a result of coming into contact with radioactive elements, the researchers said.

 
The population of wolves in the exclusion zone was found to be seven times higher than in nature reserves

“It’s very likely that wildlife numbers at Chernobyl are much higher than they were before the accident. This doesn’t mean radiation is good for wildlife, just that the effects of human habitation, including hunting, farming and forestry, are a lot worse,†said Professor Jim Smith of Portsmouth University, who led the study.

Jeremy Wade's catfish ( from the cooling ponds) didn't appear to be doing too well under the conditions there?
