* Shortly after the US entered WW2, German u-boats began patrolling off the eastern seaboard. This made it extremely dangerous for fishing boats to go out, because they were effectively unarmed and likely to get sunk. The result of several years free of human fishing was that fish populations exploded. However, certain species have been so overharvested that scientists believe they will never recover.

* In the ''NovelsOfTheChange'', the total collapse of all modern technology means that things like bison and prairies make a hefty comeback, and wolves come back to the U.S. in force (also, lions and tigers. Blame soft-hearted zookeepers).

* The shadow elves of ''{{Mystara}}'', a D&D game setting, retreated underground to escape the Great Rain of Fire. Hundreds of years later, when the planet had recovered, their scouts rediscovered a path to the surface ... and ran smack into a subversion: rather than a paradise, the tunnel led to the Broken Lands, one of the few places on the planet that ''still'' looked like a radioactive wasteland. They went back underground and stayed put for another thousand years.

* In ''Literature/TheWorldAndThorinn'', Thorinn learns that [[spoiler:the robot overlords are maintaining a number of small "worlds" in layers to conserve life on Earth. It's left ambiguous as to whether there still exists a habitable outer shell, or if that's the one that Thorinn started at.

* Ironically subverted in ''EveOnline'' - the New Eden system was initially a paradise, but was destroyed by the catastrophic collapse of the EVE wormhole. It is now a [[CrapsackWorld Crapsack Galaxy]].

* In the film adaptation of ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'', this is [[EvilSorcerer Grigori]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist Rasputin's]] motivation for trying to release the [[SealedEvilInACan Ogdru]] [[EldritchAbomination Jahad]]. He's [[AxeCrazy deluded]] of course, seeing as an actual vision of their return reveals a fiery wasteland.
** This is actually more or less true in the comics. The Ogdru Jahad's ultimate goal is, more or less, to return Earth to the way it was in prehistoric times, before God selected humans to be His chosen people. While visions of the immediate aftermath of an Ogdru Jahad victory show grey, ruined, smoking wastelands full of ash and collapsed buildings, their long term plan is to cover the world in lush, mesozoic jungles populated by reptiles, amphibians and crustaceans.

* The ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'' issue of ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' ends with this. The FinalBattle with a [[CosmicEntity Phoenix Force]]-empowered ComicBook/{{Magneto}} ends up [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt burning the planet and killing every person on it]], except for ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}, who survives through a combination of his HealingFactor and [[DeusExMachina intervention]] from [[ComicBook/JeanGrey White Phoenix!Jean Grey]]. She then fast-forwards the two of them through time, as the Earth heals itself from the damage, eventually re-covering it in lush greenery and returning it to the animals. The issue then ends with the implication that Logan and Jean will now serve as the new Adam and Eve.

* Some of the most biologically diverse regions of the UK are actually in military training areas - because of the closed nature of these areas, as well as the strict rules the military have promoting rotation and protection (some parts of the training areas are even off limits to infantry and vehicles)

** The United States military has long-standing conservation programs on its military bases. There's a species of butterfly, Saint Francis' Satyr, that now only exists at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, and the Army is actively involved in its preservation.
