Daily Overview
Huge sea salt evaporation ponds add color to the landscape of Las Coloradas, a community in Yucatán, Mexico. These ponds are part of an area that refines about 750,000 tons of sodium each year and produces six different types of table salt. The brilliant color of the water comes from salt-loving microorganisms, which serve as a source of food — and a source of pigment — for a thriving population of flamingos.
We’re excited to have created this Overview for enRoute magazine, the in-flight magazine for Air Canada, to share with their readers and followers.
