Bolivia’s second-largest lake dries up and may be gone forever

Lake Poopo was Bolivia’s second largest. It started to dry up in late 2014, and by December last year it evaporated. Scientists said a drought linked to El Nino, as well as the diversion of rivers for mining and farming, have all played a part in Lake Poopo’s latest disappearance. It’s not the first time the lake has dried up. In 1994, it turned into a salt flat. It took two years for the lake to recover. But if scientific predictions are to be believed this might be the last time.
