13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Salton Sea Sunset

The Salton Sea was created when a man made dam broke and flooded the lowest part of the Coachella Valley. Today man is threatening this bird wonderland by diverting water to cities and allowing farm run off to pollute the Sea. The Salton Sea has some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We need to find a way to bring fresh water to this area before the sea dies off. The Salton Sea can be saved if the right resources can be diverted to this area.
