There is an oasis in the desert, less than 60 miles west of the Arizona border. Or is it a mirage, at risk of disappearing?
California's Salton Sea is not just a unique tourist destination, but also one of the most important places for birds in North America. For more than a century, the sea has served as a major nesting, wintering, and stopover site for millions of birds of more than 400 species. The valleys that stretch from its banks are also home to hundreds of thousands of people, diverse communities with rich histories.
However, the Salton Sea is in danger—both of losing its ecological value and of threatening the health of more than a million people. Just as soon as it came, it could become a toxic dust bowl, an oasis shifting into a mirage.
