Images Of Nature Reclaiming The Land From Human Civilization

T ry as we might humanity cannot take over the natural world for long- eventually nature fights back, and for the most part wins, despite our extremely destructive efforts.

It’s humbling and gratifying to see the natural world overcoming the odds and reclaiming space from development happy humans, even though these acts of reclamation usually take decades, if not centuries, to succeed.

Bored Panda has put together an eye opening collection of photographs that demonstrate how nature slowly but surely takes back the land, no matter how much concrete we pour.

We’ve featured a few of these stories here, but when you see them all together in a gallery of images from around the world they tell a tale of man versus nature in which man will inevitably lose.
