Weapons and Wildlife

In this photo taken Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2019, a roadside sign on the Hanford Reach National Monument gives information about the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in view on the other side of the Columbia River flowing past near Richland, Wash. A handful of sites where the United States manufactured and tested some of the most lethal weapons known to humankind are now peaceful havens for wildlife, where animals and habitats flourished on obsolete nuclear or chemical weapons complexes because the sites banned the public and most other intrusions for decades. Hanford, where the cleanup has already cost at least $48 billion and hundreds of billions more are projected, may be the most troubled refuge of all. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
