Storyboard Text

  • Hey Dad whats this wetland named?
  • This is called the Salton Sea and is one of the most well known wetlands in California
  • Why is it called that?
  • I think it is time you learned about the Salton Sea
  • It was first created in 1905 when the Colorado Rive flooded and went through an irrigation canal and flowed into the lake for 18 months
  • At one point people even used it as a beach
  • But it had no drainage outlet and with a runoff from farms it became polluted with pesticides and became saltier than the pacific ocean
  • Most fish that have tried to live in the sea have died but some of them still live like the Mozambique tilapia.
  • The only reason it still has water in it is because the water from the Colorado river was flowing into it.
  • It can also fix a lot of dead wildlife. I hope this taught you a lot about the Salton Sea
  • It did thanks you guys!
  • Actions are being taken to help it though. There is a plan to start getting new water in it and if it works than it would make it into a premier destination again
