Exclusion zone or protected area?

Do you know what is the difference between "Chernobyl wolf" and all others? 70 % of the former's diet consists of wild animals, while regular wolves eat mostly domestic animals. 30 years after a nuclear disaster, the exclusion zone of Chernobyl is a home for many unique animals and plants now. On April 26, 2016, Ukraine created the Chernobyl ecological reserve to protect one of the most unique biological worlds thriving on the land of a nuclear fall out.

This Hromadske dispatch tells a story of vibrant wildlife amid radioactive wasteland.
