Caption: Salt lake bathing, Senegal. Microbiologist Bernard Oliver floating in Lake Retba (the 'Rose Lake'), a salt lake in Senegal. He is floating due to the high salt concentration. The pink colour of the lake is due to extremophile bacteria that are found in its waters. In this case, the bacteria are halophiles, thriving on the high salt concentration that ranges from 80 to 300 grams per litre. Oliver works for the French Development Research Institute (IRD), which studies the relationship between humans and the environment.
