Screening: Radioactive Wolves - Wildlife in the Dead Zone Around the Chernobyl Disaster

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Session Duration: 1.5 hrs

There have been reports of wolves in the dead zone around Chernobyl. Are the wolves moving in from elsewhere and dying, or are they reproducing in this environment?

This documentary, which was made for the Nature TV series, follows scientists and naturalists who enter the dead zone and observe the effects of radiation on the wildlife.  It includes rare footage of the modern 'red forest' and the abandoned villages & cities near the reactor.

The movie is under an hour and the remaining time will be spent in an open discussion about the movie with lecturer Richard W. Smith.


Richard Smith

Richard Smith has been a teacher, professional game designer and programmer. He is a serious science geek and facinated by terraforming Mars. He has given numerous talks at V-Con on subjects of science and the future.
