Pink Lake is a salt lake located in the region of Goldfields-Esperance in Western Australia. It is a very big lake with a surface area of 99 hectare or equivalent to 245 acres. It is also long and wide with a maximum length of 4km (2 miles) and a maximum width of 2km (1 mile).
How does Pink Lake get its color? The lake is not always pink. However, the distinctive change in the lake’s color comes from a dye created by the bacteria that live in the salt crusts. It is a result of a green alga called Dunaliella salina, halobacterium Halobacteria cutirubrum and even sometimes it caused by a high concentration of brine prawn.
When the lake water reaches a certain salinity level that is greater than that of seawater, along with temperature that is high enough as well as adequate light conditions, the alga will begin to accumulate a red pigment called beta carotene. The pink halobacterium will grow in the salt crust at the bottom of the lake, and therefore the lake will start to become pink as a result of the balance between D. salina and H. cutirubrum.
Another fact about the Pink Lake is that it is identified as an Important Bird Area (IBA) by BirdLife International. This is because it is home to a significant number of native as well as migratory birds. Miracle Learning Centre would like to bring you more articles on Science tuition concepts.

The various complexities of Science sometimes work as a setback and students feel demotivated about that. This creates a void which is created by the avoidance towards the complex subjects. But these subjects are extremely important as they are connected with a lot of other subjects and many professions are based on these subjects. The primitive teaching styles of various schools and institutions take away the fun of learning and leaves behind a lot of myth, uncleared doubts and concepts in the minds of the students.
