Feature - Great Salt Lake
Carolyn Drake
Great Salt Lake, located in northern Utah, is the western hemisphere’s largest salt water lake.
The lake’s water level has dropped almost 50% since the mid 19th century and with the decrease in volume, the salinity levels have increased - water in the north part of the lake is eight times saltier than the ocean. An important stop for migrating birds, both ecologists and hunters are worried that the species that rely on the lake’s marshes are losing nesting grounds due to the lake’s water being diverted for farming and servicing Salt Lake City.
