The accident at Chernobyl nuclear power plant resulted in complete abandonment of a huge territory in Belarus (as well as land on the Ukrainian side), creating the largest ever experiment as to what nature does when people leave.  25 years later the area is the nearest that Europe has to a wilderness and gives key lessons on how wildlife doesn’t need us!

The talk will present a summary of what has been learnt and where do we go from here.
