The Salton Sea is a saline lake, occupying the lowest elevations of the Salton Sink, part of the larger Colorado Desert in Southern California, USA, north of the Imperial Valley.

The Salton Sea has been termed a “crown jewel of avian biodiversity” (Dr. Milt Friend, Salton Sea Science Office). Over 400 species have been documented at the Salton Sea. The Salton Sea supports 30% of the remaining population of the American White Pelican. The Salton Sea is also a major resting stop on the Pacific Flyway. On 18 November 2006, a Ross’s Gull, a high Arctic bird, was sighted and photographed there.

The sea’s rising salinity threatens to eliminate the habitat value for fish-eating birds, such as pelicans. Without restoration actions, the sea will also eventually fail to support the microorganisms necessary to support the many shorebirds that depend on the Salton Sea.
