A documentary on the plight of the Salton Sea.
The Salton Sea is the largest lake in California. It is also evaporating at a rapid rate. Sustained via agricultural run off for the past 100 years, the Salton Sea is coated with salt and toxins that, when exposed to desert winds, will carry into the air rendering all agricultural products useless and become a major disaster for the health of millions. The Salton Sea is also a major stopping point for millions of birds on their migratory path, the Pacific Flyway. When the last of the tilapia die off (due to suffocation from rising salinity levels), these birds will have nowhere to go.
This is an independent documentary about the Salton Sea.
