Canberra, Australia
Farmer John Ive inspects a dam on his property at Dicks Creek, located 35 kilometres (22 miles) northwest of Canberra, that has been effected by blue-green algae, also known also as Cyanobacteria, June 4, 2007. Potentially lethal to all animals, the algae thrives on a combination of nutrients, light, warmth and calm conditions, which are all factors common to lakes, reservoirs and farm dams. Many inland water ecosystems in Australia face an enormous threat from the presence of the blue-green algae. As the surface scum begins to die and decompose, the toxins are released and the oxygen supplies on which vegetation, fish and other water life depend, are depleted.
