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.
