There Are Some People At Chernobyl
Despite the high levels of radiation, the wildlife that has moved in, and the lack of infrastructure and government services, some people live at Chernobyl. Some of these are inhabitants who insisted on returning to their family homes. Some are scientists who are studying the effects of the radiation or the wildlife that is now thriving in the exclusion zone.
Believe it or not, some of the people at Chernobyl are tourists who want to see the desolation for themselves. So then there are animal charities and volunteer veterinarians that care for the animals of Chernobyl, particularly dogs.
