So in Venezuela, there is a lake called Lake Maracaibo. This used to be a source of oil and so many people in Venezuela extracted oil from this lake. This lake is 5000 square miles making it one of South America’s biggest lakes. But in 2021, somebody took the most shocking picture! The whole lake was blackish green! Normally if overpollution occurs, you see so many algae.. but here an oil spill impacted the whole lake! Crude oil is still spilling and it is disrupting the local environment! Please do take action and clean up this poor lake if you are an environmentalist in South America!
Please do make the earth a better place to live for our future generations to come!
