DMZ, covering the scars of war with lives


It’s a large land(907㎢), one-250th of the entire Korean Peninsula(220,000㎢), based on land area. This place in which any grass couldn’t live has become a paradise, where many lives have preserved their primitive forms. There are natural monuments like golden eagles, mandarin ducks and 2,700 species of endangered wildlife like lynxes and wildcats around the DMZ. We will introduce the creatures that comprise the DMZ ecosystem according to the designation status of the Cultural Heritage Administration and the classification system of the Ministry of Environment
