These cormorant birds enjoy the view at the Dead Sea Works factory located by Israel's Dead Sea. This factory is the world's seventh largest producer and supplier of potash products, with more than 10,000 employees.

Businesses have long been using Dead Sea minerals to make health and beauty products thanks to the sea's high mineral content, high atmospheric pressure and low allergen count and pollution. Doctors even use the sea for medical research and health treatments.
