Areas in Fukushima, Japan that are void of human life have begun to see a resurgence of wildlife almost a decade after a nuclear accident. More than 20 species including pheasants and Japanese hare have been photographed and documented returning to the area. Animal species that had more run-ins with humans seem to especially be thriving without the conflict with humans. Images captured animals in all three zones; humans excluded, humans restricted, and humans inhabited. Raccoons and monkeys were some of the species with the most recordings in the excluded and restricted zones that still have dangerously high levels of radiation.
