A Road To Nowhere?

Post by Dreamweaver » 18 Dec 2016, 12:45

It Looks Like A Road To Nowhere, But It’s Actually A Tunnel Between Countries!

The structure itself is amazing, but so is the man-made island located where the bridge meets the tunnel.
The island is called Peberholm and is a plant and wildlife sanctuary.

It is very strictly regulated as it’s considered a biological experiment.
Scientists had predicted that nature would colonize the island on its own without human interference.
Accordingly, only biologists are allowed on the island (outside of the railroad and highway),
and they may only visit areas of the island once a year.

As of June 2007, biologists have registered 454 plant species on the island, 20 species of spiders, and 12 species of birds.
Since then, the number of bird species has increased significantly, and more species have been found,
including toads, butterflies, beetles, bees, spiders, rats, and hares!

I particularly wonder how the rats and hares got there.
