The lake got its name "Natron" because it contains natron, a naturally occurring mixture of sodium carbonate decahydrate and around 17% sodium bicarbonate with small quantities of sodium chloride and sodium sulfate that comes from volcanic ash from the Great Rift Valley.
Surprisingly despite its deadly characteristics, Lake Natron is the main breeding ground for lesser-flamingos. Algae grows on a salt area like Natron, the birds nest on them and feed off them

Actually, no one knows for certain exactly how and why they die, but it seems like the extreme reflective nature of the lake’s surface confuses them
