A new lake where you’d least expect it

Just over that sand dune -- an oasis.

Cresting a red sand dune in the United Arab Emirates, you come upon an unexpected sight in the desert: a shimmering expanse of fresh water. This oasis is no mirage, and yet it wasn’t there several years ago. This story offers a cautionary tale, and is part of the audio series One Species at a Time.
