Wildlife abounds on DOE Environmental Management sites currently undergoing cleanup. Most of these sites are situated on huge undeveloped parcels of land, only a fraction of which is used for nuclear operations. That makes these sites a welcome home for wildlife. From wild turkeys to alligators, elk, rare owls and more, today's environmental cleanup program is taking place amid a menagerie of wildlife. In this week's episode--the first in a four-part series--we visit the Savannah River Site in South Carolina with Dr. Gene Rhodes, Director of the University of Georgia's Savannah River Ecology Laboratory. Plus get all the latest news from the Environmental Management program.
