Who ever would have thought such a thing? Some articles the topic of which is battle-zones which have become wild-life refuges.
Animals able to exist and even thrive in an area of hostilities where humans dare not to tread!
1. "The Falklands penguins that would not explode"
"The minefields laid in the Falkland Islands were intended to kill or maim British soldiers, but over the last 35 years they have become de facto nature reserves for penguins"
Penguins able to wander through minefields, nest, raise their young unmolested by mankind. Such is the situation on the Falkland Islands. A legacy of the war between Argentina and England decades ago now. [just seems like yesterday!] The penguins evidently too light to set off a mine as intended to blow the leg or foot off a human.

2. "The most dangerous nature reserve in the world"
"A long-legged white crane flits languidly through a paddy field as birdsong fills the air among the lush green hills. Welcome to possibly the most dangerous nature haven on the planet – the demilitarized zone separating South and North Korea."
3. "How wildlife is thriving in the Korean peninsula's demilitarized zone"
"The forces that lock humans out of the DMZ have allowed other species to thrive. Could a remnant of violent conflict become the symbol of a greener, more peaceful future?"
REPUTEDLY ONE OF THOSE ANIMALS ALIVE AND DOING WELL IN THE DMZ THE SIBERIAN TIGER. AMERICAN MILITARY PERSONNEL USING REMOTE SURVEILLANCE EQUIPMENT AND NIGHT-VISION-DEVICES HAVE SPOTTED THE PREDATOR AND CONFIRMED THE PRESENCE THEREOF!
The DMZ in Korea often referenced and cited as an example of what would occur to the planet if mankind became extinct for what ever reason.
Again, who would have thought.
