When the sun rises, Lake Bogoria (Kenya) turns pink. It is one of the most beautiful postcards of Kenya. After the rainy season, the country hosts three quarters of the world’s flamingo and lesser flamingo populations. Each year, tens of thousands of tourists come from all over the planet to admire the spectacle.
“It’s really beautiful. I’ve never seen so many birds on a lake”exclaims a tourist. The flamingos began to desert some of the lakes where they used to live. For example, a hundred kilometers from Bogoria: Lake Nakuru, formerly known for its flamingos. “Ten years ago, you could see millions of flamingos, it looked like a big pink cloud. Today, you don’t see much anymore”, deplores Jackson Raini, director of the flamingo protection network. In 2013, following floods, the level of this salt lake increased, its surface area doubled.
