Bolivia Evaporated Lake

In this Jan. 16, 2016 photo, a plane flies over the dry lake bed of Lake Poopo, Bolivia. The El Nino weather phenomenon has inflicted periodic droughts on Poopo for millennia and last struck this hard in 1997-98. But over the past three decades unprecedented stress has befallen a fragile ecosystem where 83 percent of rainfall evaporates. (AP Photo/Juan Karita)

Bolivia Evaporated Lake

In this Jan. 12, 2016 photo, fisherman Felix Rojas, 78, speak with the Associated Press, in Untavi, near lake Poopo, Bolivia. “With a group of peasants we started fishing in Lake Poopo. With the winnings from fishing I have payed for my children’s education and have been able to feed them well. Now we are very sad that the lake has dried up. I do not know what is going to happen to our children and grandchildren? How are they going to survive? But we have to come up with imaginative solutions.” said Rojas. (AP Photo/Juan Karita)

Bolivia Evaporated Lake

In this Jan. 16, 2016 aerial photo, shows a view of Lake Poopo, Bolivia. High on Bolivia’s semi-arid Andean plains at 3,700 meters (2.3 miles) and long subject to climatic whims, the shallow saline lake has dried up before, most recently in the 1940s, only to rebound to an area twice the size of Los Angeles.
