Mono Lake in the Eastern Sierra of California is noted for its tufa spires, which are otherworldly limestone deposits. Mono Lake's ecosystem has been an environmental regulation case because the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power earlier tried to drain water from much of the lake, causing coyotes to eat the migrating birds resting and nesting on the tufa. Draining the lake also endangered the brine shrimp and brine fly populations due to excessive salinity.
