what will happen to the aral sea if irrigation practices continue?

    The Aral Sea is more than 5 million years old and is considered one of the twenty ancient lakes in the world.  The Sea was the fourth largest sea in the world, and has already lost 90% of its volume due to irrigation.  With already drastic environmental effects, the continued use of irrigation in the area could lead to further animal migration from the area and the loss of a once thriving ecosystem.  In less then 100 years, the Aral Sea has gone from a thriving ecosystem to an area filled with pollutants and, as the water shrinks, the contaminants become more dense and deadly.
