If You Think North Korea Is a Wild Place, Check Out the DMZ


PAJU, South Korea—The demilitarized zone that separates the two Koreas has been off limits to nearly all human habitation for more than 60 years. The absence of people has allowed wildlife to flourish, helping to turn the 380-square-mile symbol of division into a preserve for species such as Asiatic black bears, Eurasian lynxes, musk deer, cranes and martens.

Now, as North and South Korea give peace a chance, conservationists fear the same can’t be said for the DMZ’s wildlife.
