Located in California's spectacular Eastern Sierra, Mono Lake is an oasis in the dry Great Basin, this desert lake has an unusually productive ecosystem based on brine shrimp that thrive in its waters, and provides critical nesting habitat for two million annual migratory birds that feed on the shrimp and blackflies. Mono Lake is the largest natural lake completely within the state of California. The Mono Lake is a salty and alkaline lake: there are 4-7 trillion brine shrimp living in the lake as well as millions of alkali flies that live both in the water and along the shore. If you visit a beach in California and you see a California Gull there's a high probability it was born at Mono Lake. By late spring anywhere from 44,000 to 65,000 California Gulls arrive to breed on Mono's lesser-known islands. Mono Lake is home to the second largest California Gull rookery in North America (Great Salt Lake is the largest).
