The Cave of the Blue Lake

Today, after a short but bumpy drive, we visited the Cave of the Blue Lake. Down a steep and slippery rock trail we reached the metallic blue water. The blue color in the water comes from the sunlight, streaming down from the huge crack in the land above. There are no fish in the lake, only shrimp and other fossils. The stalagmites and stalactites with their interesting shapes and textures surrounded us as we trekked down into the cave.

Later in the evening, our class had the opportunity to interact with one of Brazil’s most endangered animals, the macaw. The presentation also included information on illegal animal trafficking and how it’s affecting the country’s endangered species’.
